SUE is more than just another rock band. Beginning in a small home studio located way out in the backwaters of the West Midlands, it was conceived not out of choice but out of necessity. The founder and frontman, Elliot, was itching to create something unique. Drawing on a wide variety of influences including Johnny Cash, Nirvana, Black Flag and Leathermouth, he began striking his guitar and shouting his words like he never had before. Fuelled by an ongoing dissatisfaction with popular music along with his deep well of ambition, he set out to make music that could get an audience to jump around like animals while simultaneously plunging them head first into existential despair.  

Fast forward to the present and Elliot is joined by Miles and James, two key figures in both the now and the future of SUE. As Elliot thrashes at his guitar and mixes his chaotic vocals with guttural screams James beats the strings of his bass guitar into submission. Offering thunderous and roaring bass lines that compliment and assist the guitar as well as the songs, the low end of SUE’s sound is always booming with character. All the while Miles hammers away at his drum kit with precision and a thrilling intensity. Confident and cool headed he holds the disarray together, providing memorable and groove infused beats that add the final touches to the infectious noise of SUE. 

Their wails and whines, their distorted tones and frantic rhythms will grip you from start to finish. They embrace the chaos that lies at the heart of all creativity, and most importantly they love what they do. 

They hope you do too.

PRESS QUOTES

"A rough and raw sound skilfully composed by a group of musicians whose talents go far beyond the DIY texture, they let these talents bleed through often enough to give the music some depth and weight but not so often as to compromise their core vision of pelting out fast, furious rock!" (Off The Hook Music Reviews)


"Stooges and Sex Pistols riffs abound as Sue put in their claim for the for leaders of the wannabe kings of the new guitar movement – as there certainly are a number of fine guitar bands forming and releasing records at the moment, and Sue are indeed up there with a fighting chance of making their way To the top of the pile." (Monolith Cocktail)


"The best hardcore influenced music straddles that thin line of self obsession and broken ego. You hate yourself but it’s also all you think about, and a lyric like “I see myself in all their faces… Just like them, I am nothing” is perfect. It’s visceral, it’s pissed off but it’s sad, even resigned. It’s saying something very complicated in a very simple way. It speaks to the voice in all of us." (Indie Midlands)


"This molten pot of guitars, percussion and guttural screeches is almost nuclear." (Express & Star)


"SUE is a gritty, attitude laden punk band that prides themselves on a noisy style that focuses on discovering beauty hidden amongst chaos. On their debut album, It Will Never End, they do just that: offer punk rock tunes that are gruff, chaotic, dirty and most of all beautiful." (A Look Into Music)


"Good on SUE for crafting a different kind of ‘noise’, one that will have more mass appeal thanks to its defiant stance. What other band would have even thought about wrapping up with a 14 minute track!? Something a little different too as it’s almost completely melodic and moves at a snails pace for most of its run-time. Bloody good though." (GBHBL)
