Scottish trio Sucioperro snapped into existence in 2002, and proceeded to tour with any and everyone including Biffy Clyro, Oceansize, Reuben, Hell Is For Heroes, and many more. In 2011 they released their third album ‘The Heart String & How to Pull it’ through Xtra Mile. This year, however, sees a new Suciperro step forward. Gone have the ties to their former label and instead a DIY approach is the weapon of choice for their new album ‘Fused’ set for release on September 3.
Originally written and demoed in just 10 days, off the back of their last album tour, the band set to work refining the songs before self-producing most of the album in their own studio, known as The Lair. Their DIY approach continued as they became heavily involved in the mixing of the record as well as the artwork being done in house.
Finally ‘Fused’ will be released through new label Medals For Everyone which (as you guessed) is run by the band themselves. It’s a much more dark and abrasive record than their previous efforts, taking cues from the likes of Jesus Lizard and Helmet.
As well as the new record, 2012 marks the tenth anniversary of Sucioperro as a band, which sees them evolve from a three-piece live band to an even deadlier five-pronged rock beast with Hooligan Sadikson and Gordon Love joining JP Reid (also one half of Marmaduke Duke with Simon from Biffy Clyro), Fergus Munro, and Stewart Chown.
To support the release of ‘Fused’ Sucioperro will be touring the UK through out September and October.
