Eddie Spaghetti of Supersuckers Signs to Bloodshot

Eddie SpaghettiEddie Spaghetti, frontman for sometimes rock, sometimes country band The Supersuckers has signed a multi-album deal with Bloodshot Records, with a new album coming soon.

From Spaghetti:

“I am officially a signed artist again. I have taken my pen to paper and made a deal with the devil and it is my pleasure to announce that I, Eddie Spaghetti, have signed on to do a few records with the incredible label that is Bloodshot Records. While the band continues their break throughout the summer, I will be recording my third solo record. In fact I will be in there in about a week.”

“I am excited to start this new relationship with a label as quality, as high caliber as Bloodshot. They have an amazing track record and their staff seems super ready, willing and more than able to get my shit out there in a way it has yet to be. I have a great batch of songs that I am ready to hit the studio with. Some covers, some not. Joining me for this recording will be none other than the amazing Mr. Scottzilla Churilla. He’ll be pounding the “dead skins” like the mo-fo that we all know him to be. Also helping me out with some tasty guitar licks will be the incredible “Metal” Marty Chandler. Who will be channeling his fabulous country guitar work into my new thang. (So, unless Dan Thunder Bolton shows up and puts some magic on it, we’ll have three fourths of the Supersuckers on this thing. Nice!) I don’t have a title for this record yet and I reckon I could use a few suggestions.”

Eddie and the Supersuckers put out possibly the best straight country album by a rock band in 1997 with Must’ve Been High, which featured appearances by Willie Nelson and Kelley Deal. They also played as Willie’s backup band on an appearance of The Tonight Show, and have a very rare but very good EP with Steve Earle as well.
