Super Angel

When SixthDay’s debut Now Is the Time is launched March 26 with a show at Brick by Brick, it will include songs cowritten by their late drummer Andy Campbell, but not those tracks as recorded with Campbell. “Those recordings never made it out of the mixing and mastering phase due to financial reasons,” according to singer Rocco Torres. “Currently, those tracks are being held by our original producer. He’s demanding some more payment in order to release them to us. He’s being kind of a dick about it.”

Campbell, who suffered from schizophrenia, took his life at the age of 21. Says Torres, “The drum tracks on this album are all by Turtle Sanders, who joined after we fired our second drummer for cocaine use.”

The 11-track album closes with a tribute to Campbell called “Super Angel.” “We wrote it in my garage the day before Andy’s funeral, where we performed it. The title comes from a picture of Andy that his mother showed us, with him as a little kid, about four or five. He had saved a bird with a broken wing, and his mom made a cardboard sign that said ‘Super Angel’ that he was wearing around his neck.”

The March 26 show will include Ohio cowpunks 500 Miles to Memphis, as well as locals Relevance and Unset. “SixthDay will perform all of the tracks on the album, plus a couple surprises,” says Torres. “There will be a couple sexy girls walking the venue with old-style cigarette boxes, selling and giving away merchandise, and we’ll be asking for donations to the Andy Campbell Multimedia Scholarship fund at Palomar College.”

The scholarship in Campbell’s name is awarded to two students each spring — one for studying graphic arts and another for studying digital media.
