The archetypal art school fops return to show the young ones how to swagger.
Suede have announced a headline UK tour performing classics, hits and tracks from their forthcoming album _Autofiction_, and culminating in a performance in Brixton that marks 30 years after Suede made their iconic debut performance at the venue in May 1993.
Their aim was to create an album capturing the power and energy that exists between Suede and their audience at gigs. A theme that’s resonated since the day they announced the album, debuting bold opener 'She Still Leads Me On' live on stage at a surprise performance in Brussels that was live streamed for fans.
_Autofiction_ has been tipped as 'a superb new album' by _The Times_ and 'their best album in decades' by _Uncut_. _DIY Magazine_ described Suede as 'fiercely in motion', and _MOJO_ described the new record as 'so moving, the punk ferocity protecting a deeply vulnerable core'.
"_Autofiction_ has a natural freshness, it's where we want to be", and where Suede want to be is, in a way, the same place as they were when they began 30 years ago – a group of people living off the raw sensation of creating music together in a room.
'_Autofiction_ is our punk record...No whistles and bells. Just the five of us in a room with all the glitches... revealed; the band themselves exposed in all their primal mess'
