Supernaughty Sign to Argonauta Records; Debut LP Due Early 2018

I see what you did there, Supernaughty. Clever. With the name and all. The newcomer Italian four-piece are the latest in Argonauta Records‘ seemingly endless round of pickups — hey Gero, how many bands are on the label at this point? what’s the tally? — and though there isn’t any official audio out yet, going from the live video I managed to scrounge up below, I believe the imprint when they say there’s a strong ’90s influence. At very least I don’t think they’d lie about it at this point. The real question is with so many groups recently signed, how they manage to keep them all straight in their head. Must be one hell of a spreadsheet by now.

Note the association here with Argonauta labelmates and adventure-doomers Bantoriak. That’s always one that catches my eye, it seems, and I’m very much looking forward to their next record as well. Here’s another one for that list in the meantime. Seems to be growing all the time.

From the PR wire:



We’re excited to announce that Italian Heavy Rockers SUPERNAUGHTY are now part of the family!

Born in 2014 and formed by Filippo Del Bimbo, guitar (ex Flora e Fauna, Korkovado, Bantoriak), Alessio Franceschi, drums (ex Lisergica, Cora), Angelo Fagni, voice (ex Gosh, Cora) and Andrea Burroni, bass (ex Moss Garden, Zona Peep; now replaced by Luca Raffoni), SUPERNAUGHTY band name wants to be a clear tribute, as assonance, to Black Sabbath’s “Supernaut”.

After a recent and extensive live activity (also opening for FATSO JETSON and HIGH ON FIRE), the band is actually working with Matteo Barsacchi (MR BISON) on the final touches to the first full-length, to be released by early 2018.

What you can expect is a massive Heavy Rock with remarkable (early) Grunge and Stoner sonorities, with an exciting taste highly influenced by nineties stuff.
