As far back as 2006, Allgigs posted a review of Scottish guitar-wielders Sucioperro's album, 'Random Acts of Intimacy', branding it as 'a must for your collection'. Since those heady days, the band have undergone a few line-up changes to become a powerful trio that don't sound unlike Biffy, the Foos and the XCerts (another fine band on their label, Xtra Mile), yet have enough in the tank to steamroller their way onto some top rock-festival bills in the future and onto a few iPods before the year is out. And that Biffy comparison isn't far-fetched - both bands have one member each occasionally fraternizing as alt-rock duo side-project, Marmaduke Duke.
With album number four ready to be unleashed, Sucioperro just might be a decent bet for crossover. I say 'might' - thankfully, judging by the ferocity of newest single 'River Of Blood', fans will be delighted to know that the band haven't compromised on the sheer power of earlier recordings such as last year's 'The Heart String and How To Pull It' and 'Chemical'. The screaming has been toned down, the singing cranked up and the riffs racked up to the max. Check out the aforementioned new song, lifted from new album 'Fused', by playing the included video. 'Fused' is out in August, an occasion that will be followed-up by an extensive UK tour.
Starting in Scotland, Sucioperro will begin their jaunt in Glasgow on 13th September, followed by a short break until Inverness on the 21st, followed by Thurso, Dundee and more before a separate English leg begins in Leicester on 17th October and continues through Norwich, Winchester and lots more until York on 26th. The London show is at the Borderline on the 24th. Tickets for all the shows are available via us now, priced at under a tenner, with some shows from as little as £5. That, my friends, is a bargain.
