NEW MEMBER: BRAD
Welcome our new member, Brad! He was recommended to us by a good friend when we decided we wanted to become a 5 piece. The decision was made to allow us to get more creative with vocal harmonies, arrangement and to help us keep even more energy during our live shows.
We are very excited for this addition and look forward to the future when shows are back on!

Suave Martyrs have written and released a new single from which all proceeds will go to help the unpaid staff at Bury FC.
As some of our members are from Bury this topic is close to home for us as a Band so we are selling the single for £1 on Bandcamp, though supporters can donate more if they wish to do so.
Despite their promotion to League 1, Bury are under deep financial pressure and it is hoped that this single will allow them to continue to be a part of Bury for years to come. The football club is a vital part of the community knitting together families across the town. It is an epicentre that rides the highs and lows with their supporters. Bury cannot lose the historic centre of the community and go the way of so many other small clubs.
