It's time to get personal with Suze DeMarchi and the Baby Animals as they release the Deluxe Fully Loaded Edition of last year's Top 20 ARIA charting album, This Is Not The End.
Suze DeMarchi has always been fairly guarded about her personal and private life - until now.
In conjunction with the album release, Suze DeMarchi, who is arguably one of Australia's best and most successful female rock singers of all time, spent some time chatting with Rolling Stone magazine, resulting in a 6-page feature spread in the July edition of Rolling Stone magazine (at the newsagents now). During the tell-all interview, Suze opened up about her incredible life.
In the article, Suze talks about her divorce from Nuno Bettencourt, the effects of living the Hollywood life, turning 50, re-entering the music industry, her INXS experience, the pressures of the industry on women, depression, and returning to Australia.
“I wasn’t me. I was clouded. I needed to get home and I needed to get off the medicine I was on. I needed to face shit and go through the pain of it all. I needed to be sad and be broken.”
When asked by Rolling Stone about her reasons behind re-releasing This Is Not The End, Suze says, "I just think it’s one of the best things I’ve done. I’m proud of it. I think it’s coming from a really honest place, and I think it’s really uplifting. And I feel not as self conscious about saying what I feel. I can say what I want now, I’m older, it doesn’t matter, I don’t really care. I’m honest, I’ve got no skeletons in my closet."
Dropping on Friday, June 6th, the Deluxe Fully Loaded Edition includes never before heard live version's of the band's biggest hits - Early Warning, Rush You, Painless, and One Word, plus an extra track by the band, ironically entitled, This Is Not The End.
The 2 disc album also offers their legion of fans and followers:
16 live tracks from the 'Feed The Birds' Tour
BA365 Rockumentary on the making of the album
A lyrics booklet
Suze was also recently involved in the highly successful launch of the "I Touch Myself" Project, which went viral across the world. The project was born out of the late Chrissy Amphlett's dream to use her hit song to increase the awareness of the importance of self-examination in the early detection and prevention of Breast Cancer. It's a project that Suze was, and still is, extremely proud to be part of.
The Baby Animals launched back onto the scene last year with their third album (the first in 20 years), This Is Not The End - a genuine rock album with a return to classic Baby Animals form that their fans loved. This album saw them return to the ARIA charts, debuting at #19, and took them around the country playing sold out shows in metro areas and regional towns. Produced by ARIA award-winning producer, David Nicholas (INXS, Ash), with Nick DiDia (Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots) lending his considerable skill on the record's lead single, Email, a standout favourite amongst fans.
The LIVE album and new single, This Is Not The End, were produced by the band.
