12th september

Suede are delighted to announce that the band are the subject of a major new definitive feature-documentary Suede: The Insatiable Ones, set to premiere on 24th November at 9pm on Sky Arts, as part of an evening of programming dedicated to the band. As Mike Christie & Mat Osman point, the documentary will probably be available everywhere in the world sometime after.

The documentary conceived by the acclaimed director Mike Christie, arrives 25 years after the release of their monumental first album Suede, and in the wake of their brilliant new opus The Blue Hour, set for release on 21st September

It features behind the scenes footage of the band across its career, helped by 25 years of footage filmed by drummer Simon Gilbert.

According to Brett Anderson: “This isn't a powder-puff promotional tool, it’s a film that grasps at the very essence of what the band is."

"This is absolutely the right time for a Suede documentary", says Mike Christie in a press release, “This is a band who are once again at the peak of their artistic powers and only now in the right place to reflect deeply on their lives, past and work with brutal honesty"

The official video for "Life Is Golden" was filmed in the abandoned city of Pripyat, Ukraine near the Chernobyl nuclear power plant and was directed by Mike Christie who told The Quietus about the video: "It's not about the tragedy of the disaster that happened all those years ago - it's about the unstoppable force of life that's consumed the desolate landscape left behind by humans. It seemed wonderfully apt to set the song to cracked concrete, all conquered by towering golden trees.".
