Scottish rock outfit SUCIOPERRO will be joining the Xtra Mile Recordings family (Far, Reuben, Frank Turner...) for the release of their forthcoming album ‘The Heart String & How To Pull It’. The album will be the trio’s third full-length record and it is to be released on the 7th March on CD and download. Not being a band who seem to suffer from writers block, ‘The Heart String & How To Pull It’ will be preceded by the release of a 6 track EP titled ‘Reflexes of the Dead’ a week earlier (28th February) with the title track from the EP also appearing on the full-length album.

As well as being highly prolific song writers Sucioperro are very familiar with the live circuit having toured with Hell Is for Heroes, Oceansize, Reuben, Brigade, Fightstar and Biffy Clyro in the past. The latter, are in fact good friends with the band with Biffy frontman Simon Neil and Sucioperro front man JP Reid coming together to form their alter-ego Marmaduke Duke.

‘The Heart String & How To Pull It’ was mixed by super-producer Chris Sheldon (Foo Fighters, Pixies, Reuben, Therapy?...) and recorded at The Lair in Scotland. Speaking of the recording process frontman JP Reid says "It was the most relaxed and fun sessions I've ever been involved in. In fact everything went so smoothly it felt a bit strange because we're not used to it. Sheldon as ever was an absolute star at bringing out the best in the tracks and making it powerful. Credit also to Chris Gordon who also done an amazing job on the mastering. We really wanted to make a joyous and euphoric album, the opposite of (the band’s second record) ‘Pain Agency’. I guess for anyone into our darker side, some of it may be surprising but we weren't interested in treading ground we had already walked on. It's super important for us to keep taking risks and progressing."
