Ever since Suicide Generation exploded in London like a dirty bomb blast in December 2016, they have morphed into various incarnations to quickly become an eagerly devoured proposition in the capital’s hi-energy rock ‘n’ roll scene with their chaotic and explosive shows; their attack and intent as unpredictable as their sound.
After signing a two-album deal with Dirty Water Records, they released in July 2017 their first LP ''1st Suicide'', just a few months after a split single on No Front Teeth Records and a year after that, their second LP ''Last Suicide''. Off the back of critical acclaim from the international music press, the band would then notch up a few European tours including a number of festivals, elevating their status as young, fast-rising upstarts on everyone’s radar. After various line-up changes around the core songwriting partnership of lead singer Sebastian Melmoth and guitarist Vince Suicide, the band Recorded in April 2019 six new songs with their good friend (and ex-Cannibal) Patrice Picard.
Deploying the finest vintage analog gear, Patrice and the boys bashed out six gloriously filthy lo-fi tracks action-packed with high-powered rock ‘n’ roll numbers and the tapes were then handed over to world-famous wizard producer Jim Diamond who tied the whole damned thing together.
Their new explosive and weirdly melodic 7'' Single, will be released by five different international record labels:
Family Spree Recordings (Spain) - Corrupting the Spanish Youth of Today since 1976:
Surfin’ Ki Records (Italy)
Wanda Records (Germany) - Punk Rock Label since 1996 and yes, we love it!
Spaghetty Town Records (USA) - Spaghetty Town Records (Southern American spelling, don't ask) was formed in 2015 and quickly became one of the top underground rock labels in the United States working with artists from Europe, South America and North America. Suicide Generation will be STR's 20th release so far!
with Dirty Water Records (UK) doing the digital: Bringing music backwards into tomorrow.
The official released date will be the 10th of October, during then, the band will be touring Europe and finishing with a performance at Funtastic Dracula Festival.
The a-side and video is ''Prisoner Of Love''
Suicide Generation is here once again ready to slash up your world:
The Dirty Water Club started in October 1996 in the Tufnell Park neighbourhood of north London, at a venue called The Boston. The club's name is derived from The Standells' 1966 hit 'Dirty Water' which glorifies the US city of Boston, Massachusetts.
Past performers have included The White Stripes (voted by Q Magazine as one of the top 10 gigs of all time, Mojo one of the top 30 and Kerrang one of the top 100!), The Gories, Country Teasers, Black Lips, NOBUNNY, Kid Congo Powers, The Fleshtones, Billy Childish, Radio Birdman, The Dirtbombs, Thee Michelle Gun Elephant, The 18.104.22.168's, The Horrors and The Brian Jonestown Massacre to name just a few. The club has also seen some original '60s performers, such as The Monks, ? and the Mysterians, Kim Fowley, Sky Saxon, GONN, Michael Davis of the MC5 and more grace its stage.
