Class A’ premiered on Rock Sound and is now available to download from the band’s SoundCloud page. The video for the track was premiered exclusively by Kerrang!, and is available to watch on the band’s YouTube channel.
“If Stud is the overweight, unhygienic, eye contact-avoiding weirdo sitting in darkest corners of the nightclub, One Hundred Percent Suave is the pilled-up, pint-downing, football-chanting nightmare throwing it down on the dance floor and bothering all the females in his general vicinity,” explains frontman Fraser Stewart. “Regardless, the overwhelming self-loathing and bottomless depression are traits both characters share in equal measure.” Despite Fraser’s natural self-deprecating tone, One Hundred Percent Suave is a massive man-sized slab of fun, unadulterated rock that captures Mike Patton’s crooner moments (‘*disclaimer’, ‘Caligynephobia), Queens of the Stone Age and The Jesus Lizard’s signature tight rhythm section (‘Sweet Mister Scary’) and hectic, heart-stopping riffs (‘Class A’). In fact, The Jesus Lizard’s David Yow created the artwork for One Hundred Percent Suave. The band’s dark, twisted, snarling underbelly emerges as the album progresses though, especially on tracks like ‘Lower Pleasance’ and the climactic ‘The Stevie Nicks Method’.
With all these accolades from the press, you’re no doubt wondering what all the fuss is about – well, there’s only one way to find out. Strap in, strap on a pair and get this album on your stereo.
One Hundred Percent Suave is released via Hefty Dafty with support from Creative Scotland.
