The Futureheads Return With New Song Jekyll Ahead Of UK Tour

Thursday, 02 May 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

The Futureheads are back with a new single titled Jekyll.

Packed with spikey guitar riffs, the track marks the band's first electric release in a decade and is the first song to be shared from their upcoming sixth album, which is due out this summer. It'll follow up their 2012 acoustic record, 'Rant'.

Describing the track, vocalist Barry Hyde said it's "a violent song about my childhood disgust at the grinning, jeering faces of certain fellow primary school students (even the nice ones) whenever there was a playground fight. It left a scar in my psyche that I just can’t shake. A song for the animal part of us all. With love from The Futureheads."

The band announced their return back in January and kick off their tour tomorrow in Newcastle where they'll play the Hit The North opening party. Following that, they'll call in Stoke, Cardiff, London, Brighton, Norwich and Nottingham.

Fri May 03 2019 - NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE Riverside

The Futureheads - Powers (Album Review)
Mon 02 Sep 2019
‘Powers’ is the Futureheads’ sixth studio album and the first since the band went on hiatus following the lukewarm reception to their excellent a capella offering ‘Rant!’ in 2013. It is a return to the thrashy post punk sound that characterised their early success, and while familiar problems arise with several songs, it is a record of intricate and innovative arrangements that should place them firmly back on the European festival circuit next year.

Tue 27 Aug 2019
The stars of mid-2000s indie discos are frozen in time in the memories of a lot of people—their music might as well be an advert for sticky floors and test tube shots. And that’s where the Futureheads, who had a couple of songs that were students’ union staples, might still reside in the eyes of some.

Wed 04 Sep 2019
Seeking to stay true to a punk aesthetic, Ezra Furman and band recorded ‘Twelve Nudes’ at a rapid pace with creative help from booze and cigarettes. And it shows. It doesn’t deliver the production finesse of 2018’s ‘Transangelic Exodus’, but that’s kind of the point.

Tool’s return, after a 13 year absence that amounted to torture for their committed following, is a slow moving, dense work defined by its patient approach. Its steadfast insistence on hitting its marks in its own time, and skipping zero pages in the band’s playbook, will delight diehards.
