Their debut album “wrestlin’ with my lady friend” was released by renowned artist, Frank Kozik’s label, Mansruin Records in April of 2000. It received rave reviews and in 2002 Suplecs released their 2’nd full length “sad songs…better days” on Mansruin and later re-released on This Dark Reign/Devil Doll Records.
