Futureheads Launch New Tour

0

The FutureheadsAfter a two year absence from the music scene, Sunderland rockers The Futureheads are back bigger than ever be

fore, with a new album and massive UK winter tour.

Best known for their mesmerising Kate Bush cover of ‘Hounds of Love’, the alternative punk four piece will be kicking off at top venue London’s Astoria on 29th November, and will play across the country, showing their talents to the likes of Glasgow, Birmingham, Cardiff and many more UK hot spots.

‘This is Not the World’ is the bands third album released in May 2008, and is jam packed with new hits, including recent singles ‘The Beginning of the Twist’ and ‘Radio Heart.’

To coincide with the tour, The Futureheads have announced the digital only release of ‘I wouldn’t be like this if you were here’ a previously unheard track, which will be available from 1st December. The special one-off song is not on the bands new album, but is being saved to celebrate the end of an incredible year spent headlining sold out shows worldwide.

Now under their own record label Nul Records, The Futureheads have changed direction and promise fans a more punkier feel to their music. Be sure to catch the boys at one of the below tour dates, and check out Music Riot in the coming weeks for a review of the Cardiff gig and exclusive interview with the band.
