The Superjesus are officially back: after some teasing, the beloved Aussie rock band has returned with their ripper comeback single, Money (We're Only In It For Love).
The single arrives exactly two weeks before the group head on their Money tour with special guests Dallas Crane.
Like the best Superjesus songs, Money (We're Only In It For Love) features belted, slightly raspy vocals from singer Sarah McLeod, bassist Stuart Rudd keeping a sweet rhythm for her, and new lead guitarist and drummer, Cam Blokland and Murray Sheridan, respectively, coming together for a brilliant pop-rock song. Check it out here.
Last month, not long after revealing that they were in the studio recording their first album in 20 years, The Superjesus returned with a new band lineup and announced the imminent premiere of Money (We're Only In It For Love).
"We have had many lineup changes over the years in our quest to find the right “fit”. We’ve had it before, and when you know … you know," McLeod says about the band's new lineup. "Ruddy and I have been searching for that feeling ever since. We’ve continued to tour over the years but haven’t released any new albums because we knew the band wasn’t ready."

She added, "After Covid, we dug deep and reassessed where we were and where we wanted to go with brutal honesty. We had to make some changes in order to move on, and we are grateful to Travis and Jason for their contribution to the band. Making an album is an emotional journey; it has been 20 years since our last one. We wanted to make sure that if we took this giant leap, it was with the right dynamic.
"We’ve been very lucky in finding Cam Blokland and Murray Sheridan. We knew the minute we started working together that there was magic in the room."
The Superjesus are touring Australia this month, the band announced in September 2022.
With three ARIA Awards wins from eight nominations, two Top 10 albums, nine Top 50 hits and an induction into the South Australian Music Hall Of Fame under their belt, it's almost guaranteed that this tour will be a mind-blowing rock fest. The band are said to be touring both old hits and new music.
