SURPLUS bring their S+ tier game with new single “Make Believe,” out now on all digital platforms


Grafting together the rough edges of grunge and the neck-cramping grooves of proggy metal, with “Make Believe,” SURPLUS gather up the last few scraps of human decency and reassemble the shards into a world beyond recognition or fact. This song encapsulates that unnamed feeling in your belly, that nagging voice in the back of your skull that you can’t quite recognize. How do you escape a loop you built your whole world around?
