Suede are ''honoured'' to be given the Godlike Genius Award at the NME Awards 2015, which take place in Brixton, south London later this month.
Suede are ''honoured'' to be handed the Godlike Genius Award at the NME Awards 2015.
When asked how he felt about the win, the band's lead singer, Brett Anderson, said: ''Oh God. Well, it's an honour, of course. It's a slightly outrageous thing to be called, but it's slightly tongue-in-cheek, isn't it?
''It's wonderful to be recognised, and it's great for us having been through lots of ups and downs in our career. It's been a real roller-coaster ride of extreme highs and lows, so to be talking to you 25 years after we got together is lovely, really.''
The band are set to also perform at the award ceremony, which takes place on February 18 at the O2 Academy in Brixton, south London.
Despite the award, Brett admitted that he only feels like a god is when he is performing onstage.
He added to NME magazine: ''My day-to-day life is quite ungodlike, I have to reluctantly admit. I don't wear laurel wreaths or ride around on a chariot that often.
''Onstage is the only time: the magical feeling of power and omnipotence that one gets when one performs is the closest you ever get.''
