Battle aliens in Superheaven's new side-scrolling game before the band invades Backbooth

Last year, Philly post-hardcore band Daylight decided to change their name to Superheaven after some other band copyrighted it and claimed it for themselves. (ICYMI: There was an absurd amount of Internet backlash to this extremely levelheaded decision.) So if you’re familiar with their previous releases as Daylight, you should jump on board for their latest as Superheaven on SideOneDummy, Ours Is Chrome. It distills all the angst of digestible early ’90s alt-rock to make for a smooth swig.

Haven’t heard it yet? Might we recommend your first experience come by playing the band’s cute alien invader side-scrolling game, Chrome Invaders (oursischrome.com)? It’s a fun way to get a feel for the new record while pew-pewing alien lifeforms presumably coming to steal our band names. 

SUPERHEAVEN with Diamond Youth, Rozwell Kid, Tourist Traps, Pathos, Pathos 7 p.m. Thursday, June 11 | Backbooth, 37 W. Pine St. | 407-999-2570 | backbooth.com | $10
