The band formed in September of 2017 with the release of Masc, an album about notions of masculinity. TC Superstar quickly became a staple of the Austin scene, gigging frequently around the Red River cultural arts district.
In April of 2018 the band released Heat Death, a conceptual EP about the environment, consumerism, and grieving for the eventual death of humankind. TC Superstar followed this release with two national tours. In January 2019 the band was nominated by the Austin Chronicle for “Best New Austin Band.”
TC Superstar released their second full length album, R&D, in May of 2019, followed by a six week national tour. R&D explores notions of love, romance, and relationships through the lens of two characters, Ricky and Dana. The narrative structure of the album is broken up by audio snippets from interviews with collaborators on the project. R&D has a deeply personal feel and will resonate with anyone that has ever fallen in or out of love.
