MENACE BEACH SHARE “SUCK IT OUT” VIA INTERVIEW MAGAZINE
NEW ALBUM LEMON MEMORY RELEASED 20TH JANUARY 2017 ON MEMPHIS INDUSTRIES
FULL UK TOUR IN FEBRUARY 2017
Menace Beach, the Leeds band comprising Liza Violet and Ryan Needham, recently announced details of a new album Lemon Memory (due 20th January 2017 on Memphis Industries).
Today, they present a brand new song from it in the shape of “Suck It Out,” which premiered via Interview Magazine.
Written in Ibiza and recorded in Sheffield with Ross Orton (MIA, Arctic Monkeys, The Fall) Lemon Memory is in part an effort to lift a citrus based curse – trust us, it’s a real thing – Ryan and Liza believe was placed on their house, via the hex-breaking power of music.
It’s also the sound of a band finding their own identity, edging closer to some sort of grimy truth. Indeed, if debut LP Ratworld was Ryan’s record, then Lemon Memory is very much the Liza LP. Ryan explains: “Liza got that look in the eye and a head-down-blinkers-on thing, and only a moron would try and get in the way of that. It’s all about keeping those ideas in their purest form and diluting as little as possible.”
US audiences will get their first chance to see Menace Beach live when they come over for SXSW. Before then they are touring the UK, starting later this month.
