The Futureheads have announced they’re set to return this year, with a new album and UK tour.
A statement from the band reads: “The Futureheads breathe frantically once more.
“After our a cappella album Rant!, strapping the electric guitars back on seemed suddenly alien. A hiatus was needed: around 2000 days it seems…
“Over the past 12 months we’ve been chipping away at our 6th album. It is the culmination of every ounce of energy we have: a return, we hope, to bombastic, daring, creative righteousness.
“We are almost finished. We are in love with this record. We believe in it.”
They’ll hit the road this May and June for a short run of shows, appearing in Stoke, Cardiff, London, Brighton, Norwich and Nottingham.
The dates read:
4 Sugarmill, Stoke on Trent
28 The Globe, Cardiff
29 The Garage, London
30 Concorde2, Brighton
31 The Waterfront, Norwich
1 Rescue Room, Nottingham
