We're really excited to show this exclusive clip of Raveonettes playing an acoustic version of their single "Suicide" from the upcoming album "In & Out of Control" (out October 6th/Vice Records). Raveonette Sune Rose Wagner explains:

"It's about suicide and takes place in different locations. One of them is New York City and the Brooklyn Bridge is involved. It's a good mixture of old and new. It has the verses are very Shangri-La esque but it has a very modern rhythm and blues beat which is really nice. It has a pretty big chorus. When the chorus kicks in, it really kicks in big time."

This is one of five acoustic pieces the band did, collectively titled "The Chelsea Sessions" (which also includes an interview about the making of the album.) You can get all five when you buy the album on iTunes later this year. If you're looking to get your Raveonette on, you can catch them at Austin City Limits in October, or on tour later that month. Tour schedule here.
