|29/10/00: Suede headlined Airwaves Festival in Rekjavik, Iceland on 21st October, 2000 before going into the studio again to begin recording their next album. The festival was the only show they have planned for the rest of this year. The band are currently in a residential studio in Sussex, working on the second set of demos for their fifth album. From NME.COM, they premiered 9 new songs, "the majority were ballads, or stripped down versions of new material." "On many of the ballads, Anderson's voice was boosted by keyboardist Neil Codling and guitarist Richard Oakes on backing vocals, providing three-way vocal harmonies." "Speaking informally to NME.COM, guitarist Richard Oakes said that although the songs are currently mainly acoustic, they may not remain that way when finished. He added that the band "still have a long way to go" before the album is finished."
The Set List: 'Oceans' 'You Beautiful Loser' 'Can't Get Enough' 'Trash' 'Refugees' 'Lonely Girls' 'The Wild Ones' 'Everything Will Flow' 'Untitled' 'Beautiful Ones' 'She' 'You Belong To Me' 'She's In Fashion' 'When The Rain Falls' 'Simon' 'Lost In TV' 'Starcrazy' 'Saturday Night'It is also mentioned in the article that there will not be any new material out until spring 2001 the earliest. I guess we'll still have to wait at least, like 4-6 months until the new materials!
