The Futureheads, Sunderland’s finest, will return with their fourth album in 2010, as yet untitled.
To celebrate this, they are giving away a rather fine track, entitled ‘Struck Dumb’ and it’s available to download right here.
I’ve long had a soft spot for The Futureheads. Indeed, I remember going to see them a a small show in Edinburgh at the now -departed Venue. It was poorly attended, but they played like fury, and I was pleased to see them assault the charts over the next few years. Though they had major label problems (is that a tautology in the music world these days?!) they have long since put that behind them and are still kicking a spectacular amount of butt. The band will be playing a tiny Christmas show on December 14th at The Lexington on Pentonville Road, which has now sold out. They are in Manchester on December 18 at Moho live.
