The 17 date tour announcement comes ahead of a run of UK Record Shop dates in anticipation of new album Autofiction.
The news follows a pair of secret shows Suede performed under the guise of Crushed Kid – an idea that saw Suede taking the ‘back to basics’ nature of Autofiction to the extreme by playing live under a fake name. After sparking rumours following a week of mysterious online activity, including releasing new music under the moniker, Crushed Kid made their debut performance at London’s 300 capacity MOTH Club, followed by a set at Manchester’s Deaf Institute. Fans were treated to a high-energy surprise preview of Suede’s ninth studio album in its entirety.
Speaking about the album Brett Anderson said, “Autofiction is our punk record. No whistles and bells. Just the five of us in a room with all the glitches and fuck-ups revealed; the band themselves exposed in all their primal mess.”
Autofiction will be released on 16 September 2022
