Here they come, the beautiful ones...

Suede have announced details of a 2020 UK and European tour, where they’ll be playing their classic album ‘Coming Up’ in full.

Coming off the back of the success of their acclaimed 2018 album ‘The Blue Hour‘, Suede will be hitting the road this coming Autumn to celebrate their seminal third from 1996.

The Mercury nominated album was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize and contained five top ten singles with ‘Trash’, ‘Beautiful Ones’, ‘Saturday Night’, ‘Lazy’ and ‘Filmstar’. It remains one of their most beloved and commercially successful albums to date.

Frontman Brett Anderson made headlines last year when he spoke out to describe Britpop as “a laddish, distasteful, misogynistic, nationalistic cartoon”.

“I disassociated myself from that very early on, as soon as I saw what I saw as becoming this kind of laddish, jingoistic, cartoon happening, which became Britpop, I very quickly distanced Suede from that,” he said.

When asked if it made the band look snobby, Anderson added: “I think did it make us look snobby? Probably, you know, you make lots of mistakes along the way, I’m not perfect you know what I mean? But all you do, you just go with your instincts, and I saw what was happening with Britpop and for me, it felt quite distasteful. It felt nationalistic, it felt like there was, sort of, quite a strong thread of misogyny and I didn’t think Suede should be part of that.”
