Suzie Stapleton and her band return to Bristol to celebrate new single ‘Blood On The Windscreen’.
This is the only headline show of the tour that takes Stapleton around the UK playing supports for the Jim Jones fronted powerhouse Thee Hypnotics, and revelatory newcomer Humanist. Stapleton and her band, featuring Gavin Jay (Jim Jones & The Righteous Mind) on bass and Dave Collingwood (ex-Yann Tiersen/Gravenhurst) on drums, will be sharing new material from forthcoming album ‘We Are The Plague’.
Since relocating from Australia, Stapleton has been captivating UK audiences with electric live performances, midnight vocal, and guitar-driven noir soundscapes. She has released a string of singles and EPs, guested on Lydia Lunch & Cypress Grove’s recent desert blues albums, and contributed to The Jeffrey Lee Pierce Sessions Project alongside Nick Cave, Mark Lanegan, and Debbie Harry.
“An unmissable opportunity to see one of the most exciting emerging talents on the London scene before she hits the big time”
– LOUDER THAN WAR
“You’d need to bandy around names such as Thurston Moore, PJ Harvey, Siouxsie & The Banshees, Mark Lanegan and Marianne Faithfull… People would get the general idea – yet would still come nowhere close. What she actually sounds like – more than anything – is Suzie Stapleton. The emerging new wave of assertive and gifted female artists is both urgently needed and one of the few bright spots in an otherwise ever more worrying world.”
– TOM ROBINSON, BBC6
Support on the night comes from dark sonic seducers Shoun Shoun, and noisy dream pop trio Oh, The Guilt. Both bands have been making waves on the local Bristol scene, it’s sure to be a great night of music.
