The new single Lights Out was written for a friend of the band who lost her battle with mental illness.

Sarah McLeod, “The Superjesus would like to dedicate this song to Rita Riman. Rita was a longtime fan – she was a member of the band’s very first fan club in the early 90’s. A group of music lovers met through our message board called ‘Static’… before My Space was invented… this group became very familiar to us and attended all our shows for the next couple of decades.

“Rita struggled with mental health issues for many years but her saving grace was always music. Sadly a couple of years ago we lost her and it sent shock waves through all of us. So many people struggle with mental health issues in silence, we need to remember to ask each other if we’re ok. This song is for Rita and the fans who grew up with us.”
