Interview: SUE

#1: Competition is rough in the music industry, what is your band doing to grow and continue to reach for success?

We self-released our debut album on the 1st May, I’ve (Elliot here) been trying to promote that as much as I can. We’re hoping the album can get us some more fans, as well as some more opportunities.

#2: If someone goes to one of your concerts, what do you think they should know going in?

We’re loud, chaotic and if you stand too close the stage something might fall on you. 

#3: What is your dream tour or festival? 

I’d love to do a tour of the USA, it’s such a diverse land I imagine it would be quite a surreal experience.

#4: If you could collaborate with any musician, who would you choose?

If he was still alive, Johnny Cash. He’s the guy that got me into writing music, I named this band after one of his songs.

#5: Out of every concert you have been to, who are the best live bands?

Iceage are a great live band, I saw them at the Hare and Hounds in Birmingham last year. Fucking incredible show.

$6: Who are some of your biggest influences?

Metz, Fugazi, Nirvana, Black Flag, Leathermouth. Their music is all rough and raw; the best kind of stuff in my opinion.

#7: When did you first start playing music and how did that come together to lead you to where you are today?

I started play recorder when I was 5, moved onto violin when I was 7, then my Dad bought me a guitar when I was 9. I did a lot of acoustic stuff when I first started out, then when I was 16, I started a band called Salad Days. We were together for a couple years, but it fell apart when we were trying to get our first EP together. After Salad Days died, I was looking to do something new, so I started SUE.

#8: What are your plans for the rest of the year for the band? 

Some shows across the UK would be ideal, along with writing some more material and promoting the album.
