A reformed and rejuvenated Suede take their ‘punk record’ Autofiction on tour this Spring. Having reformed in 2011, they have since amassed a catalogue of new material that far exceeds standard preconceptions based on what a reformed band has historically tended to produce. Four albums into their second incarnation, they ooze as much glamour and vitality as ever.

Described as one of Brett Anderson’s most personal records, Autofiction takes a balls-out, direct and succinct approach in its emulation of a band in a rehearsal space. The cinematic companion piece to the record, Autofiction: A Short Film (created in collaboration with Suede and directed by MrMr Films founder Katie Lambert) explored the complexities of memory, the perceived truth, communication and anxiety in human relationships. 

Boasting Coming Up-era keyboard player Neil Codling in the line up for these headline shows, the band’s appearance at the O2 City Hall promises to be a barnstorming statement of intent as much as a trip down memory lane.

Suede perform at O2 City Hall on Friday 17th March.
