Nashville punks Snõõper are currently on Australian shores for the first time, touring in support of their new album, Super Snõõper, due for release on Friday, 14 July, via Jack White’s record label Third Man Records. Tomorrow, the band drop the third and final single, Powerball.

Snõõper formed in 2020 with vocalist/visual artist Blair Tramel and guitarist Connor Cummins. Although not originally intended as a performance project, the duo brought their recordings to life with the additions of Cam Sarrett (drums), Happy Haugen (bass) and Ian Teeple (guitar). 

The band have made waves throughout the US, receiving praise from Brooklyn Vegan and from a punk music icon: Henry Rollins. Rollins, who is currently touring Australia on his Good To See You spoken word tour, said about their debut album, “Super Snõõper is great great great and you might find yourself playing it over and over as it gets better and better the more you do.”

Since making their live debut in 2021, Snõõper have shared the stage with the likes of Amyl And The Sniffers, Lil Ugly Mane, Snail Mail, and more.
