“We Are The Plague”  is the debut album from Suzie Stapleton. It is a rallying cry, a howl into the abyss, the defiant call of a generation sold down the river and acutely aware of its own imminent demise – a bold soundtrack to the apocalypse.

The album was recorded at OX4 Studios, produced by Stapleton and mixed by award-winning engineer Dan Cox (Thurston Moore, Laura Marling, Pete Doherty) at London’s Urchin Studios. Bassist Gavin Jay (Jim Jones Revue/Righteous Mind) and drummer Jim Macaulay (The Stranglers) provide a solid, seething backbone to Stapleton’s expressive guitar playing and midnight vocal traversing through alternative rock to gothic-blues through to alt-folk. Includes singles Thylacine and Blood On The Windscreen and nine previously unheard tracks including new arrangements and recordings of Negative Prophet and You Were There.


“It’s rare that a new artist comes along who genuinely defies easy description, but this is certainly the case with Stapleton… a bright new star in the ascendant.”
– Louder Than War
“A supremely delicate and precise feel for the moment…like hearing Cat Power at her very best.“ – The AU Review
“She sounds like the devil convincing you to sell your soul.”
– Tone Deaf
