"If you can't do this, get out of the business!"
- David Letterman
"With its buttery horn arrangements, funky guitar licks, and lead singer Kam Franklin's bubbly vocals, 'Make Some Room'... sounds like it stepped straight out of the '70s soul-pop movement that produced Honey Cone."
- Entertainment Weekly
"Much like Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, Franklin and The Suffers can own a room...
it won't be long before people are making room for The Suffers."
- Buzzfeed
"They're the sort of neo-retro group you never knew music was so badly missing"
"'Make Some Room,' opens with a blast of classic-sounding R&B horns and spends the next four and a half minutes subtly shifting from slinky to soaring and back again."
- The New York Times
Houston's award-winning 10-piece ensemble The Suffers have teamed up with NPR Music's First Listen to exclusively premiere a full stream of their upcoming self-titled album.

Leading up to the official album release on Feb. 12, The Suffers will be performing on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah on Feb. 9.

The Suffers will be kicking off a 20-city national tour later this month supporting Lake Street Dive.

Last year brought the band to new heights, as they played 150+ shows across North America, visited NPR in Washington, DC for a Tiny Desk Concert, and made their national television debut on Late Show With David Letterman.

Established in 2011, The Suffers' lineup was curated by bassist Adam Castaneda and vocalist/keyboardist Pat Kelly, who brought on trumpet player Jon Durbin, trombonist Michael Razo,guitarist Kevin Bernier, percussionist Jose "Chapy" Luna, and drummer/vocalist Nick Zamora.

Jazz saxophonist Cory Wilson and guitarist/vocalist Alex Zamora filled out the rhythm section, while frontwoman Kam Franklin topped off the group with soaring vocals.

In a short time, the band has progressed from packing Houston venues to accepting invitations for featured performances at Hangout Music Festival, Pemberton Music Festival, Austin City Limits, Newport Folk Festival, Landmark Music Festival, Voodoo Music + Arts Experience, LouFest, AmericanaFest, UTOPiAfest, SXSW, Free Press Summer Festival, Untapped Festival, CMJ Music Marathon, and more.

The Suffers have remained a local favorite, accepting 20 Houston Press Music Awards in the last three years.

The Suffers are set to release their self-titled album on Feb. 12.
