Super Massive - Get Me Out Of My Head Digital Single & Tour


Sydney's alternative-pop/electro/rock band Super Massive have released an epic, wildly dynamic, experimental pop track called "Get Me Out Of My Head" which is out now on iTunes. The band will be touring through May, playing shows in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Byron Bay, Surfers Paradise and Brisbane from May 1st - 22nd.

The songwriting venture of singer/writer Malina Hamilton-Smith and drummer/composer Glenn Abbott (aka Bryan Ferrysexual, ex-Machine Gun Fellatio), Super Massive make highly creative, intense, exhilarating and sexy electro-alterna-pop music that's driven by brutally funky dance grooves, delivered with the lustiness of a rock band.
