The Futureheads are back! Yeah, you know, that band from Sunderland, England that you loved in 2004!
The Futureheads hit North America this June for ten dates, as they tour in support of their latest album The Chaos which releases today, 1 June. While you’re reading this, listen to “Struck Dumb” from the new album and try to resist liking this band again. Go on, I dare you.
The tour date that we’re really excited about here at Music Vice is the Toronto show on 10 June at the Mod Club Theatre – watch out for review and photo coverage of that one.
To celebrate the return of everyone’s favourite Mackem band (Leatherface fans aside), we’re giving away ONE copy of the latest Futurheads album The Chaos on 180 gram 12″ vinyl. For a chance to win, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Futureheads’ in the subject line. Be sure to include your name and hometown. We’ll select one winner and contact them for their full mailing address. This contest is open until Monday, 7 June.
The Futureheads will follow their North American dates with various festival dates across Europe, including appearances at Reading and Leeds Festivals. Below is the video to “Heartbeat Song”, another cracking track from The Chaos – great to see this band back.
