Once a staple at college radio stations across the region, Seattle’s Suction are back and recording new material for the first time since 1999. From a Monday opener, to the Gorge in George, between 1990 and 1999 the band performed at every venue in the Northwest. Best described as Dark Wave, with influences like Bob Mould, Helmet and Killing Joke, you can bet your sore neck that these guys bring the heavy, aggressive punk-influenced rock music without sounding like a rehash of a bygone time.
Original members John Felthous (vox/keys) and Carlos Salazar (lead guitar) are joined by local guitar and theory instructor Keith Wright on the offensive line. While Mike Jones (bass) and Roy "Woobie" Winston (drums) take care of concussing you.
After a 13 year break, it was time to bury the hatchet and pick up the axes. Suction are currently working on (and preforming) new material for thier third studio LP and are playing a venue near you. Go see them live, you will not be disappointed.
