British rock band and one of the most representative in the Brit-Pop era, Suede is coming back to Asia for a live concert this summer. Following the release of new album Night Thoughts, the band has embarked on a world tour!
Formed in 1989, Suede’s claim to fame was their 1993 eponymous album which achieved worldwide success. Ten years, five albums and numerous awards and chart-topping songs later, the band split in 2003. After a long hiatus, the well-loved band reunited 2010 with the current line-up of Suede is Brett Anderson, Mat Osman, Simon Gilbert, Richard Oakes and Neil Codling and gave a series of critically-acclaimed live performance, followed by the release of album Bloodsports in 2013 to critical acclaim. The band launched their long-awaited seventh studio album Night Thoughts this January alongside a feature film directed by photographer Roger Sargent.
With Night Thoughts, Suede has reached new heights in their career. The album has reached number 6 in the UK chart and has become the band’s highest charting album since Head Music in 1999. The album is also very well-received among critics, with Rolling Stone calling it the band’s “most cohesive album to date, putting on a decisive modern twist on their definitive Brit-pop” and NME saying it “sounds bolder, braver and better than they have in 20 years”.
