Suede have confirmed that they will play London’s Alexandra Palace in March 2013.
The band will perform at the north London venue on March 30. The gig announcement came at the end of a puzzle-style countdown Suede put on their Facebook page last week.
The first revelation that came from the online game was that a new Suede studio album will be released in 2013. Earlier this autumn, Suede frontman Brett Anderson said that Suede’s new album sounds like “a cross between bits of ‘Dog Man Star’ and bits of ‘Coming Up'”.
Speaking to The Quietus, Anderson explained that their sixth album “doesn’t sound anything like” their last LP, 2002’s ‘A New Morning’, but has more in common with their second album, released in 1994, and their third, which came out in 1996.
He added: “Without wishing to be facetious, it sounds like Suede. We’re not trying to reinvent the sound of the band, that’d be a disastrous thing to do. I think that’s possibly where we went wrong on the last two albums.”
