Liam and co deliver a nod to Sheffield's finest

Courteeners gave a nod to Sheffield’s musical heritage last night as they covered Arctic
Monkeys during a show in the Steel City. Check out the performance below.

The Manchester band were performing at the city’s O2 Academy when they delivered their own take on ‘Suck It And See’ – taken from Arctic Monkeys’ 2011 fourth album of the same name.

It came during the first of two encores and instantly sparked a sea of singalongs from the crowd, as the below clip attests.

The tour comes as the Courteeners gear up to release their forthcoming sixth album ‘More.
Again. Forever’, which is set for release on January 17, 2020.

It follows recent singles ‘Heavy Jacket’ and title track ‘More. Again. Forever.‘ in previewing the follow-up to 2016’s ‘Mapping The
Rendezvous’.

Yesterday, it was confirmed that Courteeners will also headline Glasgow’s TRNSMT Festival
next year, joining a line-up which also includes the likes of Ian Brown, Foals, Snow Patrol,
Keane, Sam Fender, Blossoms, Aitch, Little Simz, Rita Ora and Twin Atlantic.

Last year, Courteeners frontman Liam Fray told NME that their new material would have to be “explosive and blow you away live,” Fray added that it sounded a “bit LCD Soundsystem and groove-based.”

“It’s more dancey, but obviously with real players and a human element,” he explained. “You can hear the fucking breath on the hi-hat, rather than everything being programmed.”
