Suede: ‘We’ll carry on until it stops feeling special’ – video

Brett Anderson speaks ahead of the band's London O2 Arena gig

Suede‘s Brett Anderson has talked to NME about the reunited band’s future.

The frontman said they don’t have any long-term plans set once their current spate of reunion gigs end at the O2 Arena in London on December 7, but did hope to continue in some form.

He said that they would like to carry on until the reunion “stops feeling special”.


Anderson, along with Simon Gilbert and Neil Codling, spoke about the band’s plans in a video interview you can watch on the right hand side of your screen now.

“We certainly don’t have long term plans,” Anderson explained, although he added that he that doesn’t necessarily mean Suede will stop entirely after the London gig.

Referencing the band’s reason for reuniting in the first place, to play a Teenage Cancer Trust show last March, Anderson added: “We got asked by the Teenage Cancer Trust, ‘Do you wanna do a show?’, and it sort of felt like it would be special enough to do again. And I think we’ll carry on doing this until it stops feeling special again.”

The singer said that he recently went to a gig at the O2 Arena to “check it out” ahead of the band’s show there. “It’s all about trying to make it not naff,” he explained.
