Apocalypse Pop, waiting for the apocalypse to...drop...

Suspect Parts is the brainchild of two exiled Americans, one Brit and a German who managed to tame their inner demons with buzzsaw punk/powerpop, a cotton candy-meets-razorblade concoction that goes down surprisingly smooth.

Ex and current members of bands like The Briefs, Clorox Girls, Maniac, Ripchord, Radio Dead Ones and Red Dons – they are Suspect, they come from Suspect Parts.

Combining 60's pop and bubblegum with late 70's California beach punk and powerpop, Suspect Parts have something brewing that can't be ignored. The Seeds, the Kinks, the Knack and the Buzzcocks can be heard, as well as a little Nuggets, a little Star Spangles or Rezillos, a little Protex or Undertones, but with a modern touch. Backward-looking but forward-thinking 60s pop with a punk edge. Suspect Parts have released four 7" singles worldwide on indie labels like Deranged, No Front Teeth, Taken By Surprise, Hovercraft, and House Party. A cassette tape of all 4 singles was also released on Seattle's GGNZLA label plus some outtakes and extras on Berlin's Tape of Die label.

Now, their self-titled full-length debut album is finally here. Recorded straight to analog tape in the negative 15 degree cold of a January in east Berlin. The album was engineered by Smail Shock (of legendary Berlin punk band the Shocks). Ten songs, 24 minutes, a relentlessly catchy uppercut to the senses.

Apocalypse Pop. When oil runs out a major line is going to be drawn. Which side are you on? Which tribe are you willing to die for? ... Pop's chosen warriors will rule the apocalypse .... Drop, waiting for the apocalypse to...pop... Suspect Parts debut LP will be released in the US on Atlanta's Oops Baby Records in September and in Europe on Munich's Taken By Surprise Records in October.
