Is it too early to get excited for Christmas? The B-52’s Fred Schneider is back, in all his Snuggie-clad glory, fronting a new band called the Superions. The trio have decided to make their debut this October with a yuletide gem entitled “Destination…Christmas!” on Fanatic Records. Singing about Red Dye No. 2 and Santa at the disco is just what you’d expect from Schneider, and I, for one, can’t wait.
