Last week, Suede surprised fans by playing a secret London club show (Monday September 5), performing new album ‘Autofiction’ in full under the pseudonym ‘Crushed Kid’.
Rumours of the show spread after NME obtained photos of gear being loaded into the intimate 300-capacity London venue with the words ‘SUEDE LONDON’ branded on the carrying cases. Ticketing website Dice noted that Moth Club was hosting the debut show from unknown act Crushed Kid, who were also set to perform at The Deaf Institute in Manchester on September 6.
Speaking to NME back in May, Brett Anderson described ‘Autofiction’ as Suede’s “punk record, and we’re fucking proud of it”.
He explained: “I wanted to come back and make something that felt a little bit more raw, a little bit more angry, a little bit more nasty.”
In August, Suede shared a new short film titled Autofiction to accompany their next record. Directed and written by Katie Lambert, the video stars Noah Granville and Hannah Higton as “two protagonists at a pivotal emotional crossroads”.
