Perth band POW! Negro have announced that, after almost three years, they have decided to change their name to Superego.
In a statement, the group says they “have grown more than [they] ever thought [they] could have”.
“It has taken us a long time to recognise what we really wanted to be and stand for as a group, and we’re still learning,” the statement reads.
“The next steps for the group will be as SUPEREGO. As a culturally and musically diverse group, we wanted a name that was representative and reflective of everyone and feel this new identity encapsulates us as a whole.”
The group played their last shows as POW! Negro back in June, telling fans they were “in a state of metamorphosis”.
“Pow wasn’t meant to be anything more than a couple of gigs,” they said.
“A few boys who made music for themselves turned into POW! Negro playing music around Australia. We’d like to thank each and every one of you for the overwhelming support you have all given us. We love you all.”
The band’s first release as Superego will be premiered on triple j tonight after 6pm.
