The Futureheads have announced a new UK tour for winter.
The six-date run will kick off on 6th December, following on from festival appearances at Tramlines, Truck and more over the summer.
The band recently confirmed their first ‘electric’ album in almost a decade. ‘Powers’ follows on from 2012’s a cappella full-length ‘Rant’, and will be released on 30th August.
Recorded and self-produced at Newcastle's First Avenue Studio, it’s a record that looks “at the balance of power in a personal, political and relational sense”.
“Obviously it’s an absolute privilege to come back and still have fans and that’s something to cherish,” Ross Millard says, “but I also think we’ve got a bit of a job to do about letting people know that there’s more to this band than you might have thought.”
The new tour will visit:
6 Electric Ballroom London
7 O2 Institute Birmingham
8 Beckett University Leeds
13 Northumbria Uni Newcastle
14 QMU Glasgow
15 O2 Ritz Manchester
