Wigan alt-rockers The Suzukis have announced a number of UK dates in support of their self-titled debut album and new single ‘Personal Patrol’.
“There’s no privacy any more, gossip is news, people want to know everything about everyone and are more and more keen to let everyone know everything about themselves, while at the same time moaning about intrusion into their lives,” explains Suzukis frontman Chris Veasey on the quartet’s new single ‘Personal Patrol’. Culled from their debut self-titled album, released on Liverpool’s legendary Deltasonic label, ‘Personal Patrol’ is a moody, smouldering track with an almost psychedelic swagger that packs a bitter punch.
It is but just one of the album’s soaring eleven tracks, created in a smoke filled rehearsal room in an old mill in Wigan. And it’s been a long time coming but here could be a band for the disaffected youth. A band that match the sullen boredom and nihilistic pent up anger of battered small-town Britain with a fistful of big anthems. Don’t let them fool you, Britain is not all fancywine bars and radio 2 jazz-pop. There are still some bands out here who walk it like they talk it. This is the Suzukis and the music taps into the raw aggression that is the real England.
Catch them live at the following dates:
22 – Mad Ferret, Preston
23 – Cockermouth Rock Festival, Cumbria
26 – The Laugh Inn, Chester
29 – Independent, Sunderland
30 – Leeds Empire, Leeds
31 – Kendal Calling, Lake District
25 Underground Festival, Gloucester
