Australian alternative artist Suzie Stapleton is heading back to Australia in 2018 for a long awaited homecoming tour. This is Stapleton’s first time back to Oz since relocating to London in 2015. Over the past three years she has been captivating audiences with her electric live performances, midnight vocal, and guitar-driven noir soundscapes whilst touring the UK and Europe with artists such as Mark Lanegan, Mick Harvey, and Jim Jones & The Righteous Mind. In 2017 she appeared as guest vocalist on Lydia Lunch & Cypress Grove’s unlikely covers album “Under The Covers” - a continuation of Stapleton’s collaborations with Cypress Grove on The Jeffrey Lee Pierce Sessions Project. Stapleton is performing solo on this tour which coincides with the release of her new single “Negative Prophet”. Support acts will be announced shortly via www.suziestapleton.com.

Doors 7:30pm

“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 (UK)

“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. In fact, 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, BBC (UK)

“Yesterday’s Town is haunting as it shuffles in before Suzie’s dominant and engaging voice and guitar style enters the fray... It ebbs and flows and paints a mental picture of vast frozen landscapes punctuated only by the harsh music of epic gothic proportions... Suzie has toured with Mick Harvey and Mark Lanegan and, on this brief evidence, it won't be long before they're opening for her.”
- Uber Rock (UK)

"The truth is that Suzie Stapleton is streets ahead of so many singer/songwriters that success seems inevitable. I can only assume the majors are scampering with intent toward her right now."
- i94 Bar (AUS)

"...a gorgeous blend of dark compelling lyrics and looping raw and gentle notes. If you could meld PJ Harvey and Chrissy Hynde together then you are getting somewhere close to the style and presence that she commands in the room, and this is before she has released her debut album. We will be hearing much more from this lady very soon and I certainly plan to be there when it happens."
- Flick of the Finger (UK)
