The Futureheads unveil preview video of upcoming UK tour

| On 12, Mar 2012

With the Futureheads’ acoustic and a cappella tour just around the corner (see dates below) it seemed only fair to give people a taste of what’s to come. Acoustic instruments and harmonies there may be, but this is no sleepy, laid back affair. They are The Futureheads – it’s punk, it’s pop and it’s frantic, and you can get an idea of what’s in store by watching their two-minute tour preview below.

Watch the band’s tour preview here, filmed by Ian West:

The UK tour kicks off on April 2nd in Brighton to coincide with the release of a capella album ‘Rant’. Fully aware that the words terms ‘a cappella’ and ‘acoustic’ may lead to general assumptions, the band decided to put a stop to these ideas and put forward their interpretation of what these words can mean:

“Just because this is an a cappella album doesn’t mean to say that the songs are slow or passive,” explains Barry Hyde. “They’re still in-your-face, slightly mad, aggressive. They’re still The Futureheads.”

The Futureheads will be playing the following UK shows:


2nd: BRIGHTON, Komedia
3rd: BRISTOL, Colston Hall
4th: LONDON, Union Chapel
5th: LEEDS, Wardrobe
6th: STOCKTON, Georgian Theatre
8th: GATESHEAD, Sage
9th: GLASGOW, Oran Mor
10th: BIRMINGHAM, Glee Club
12th: NOTTINGHAM, Glee Club
13th: MANCHESTER, Royal Northern College of Music
