Sunderland’s The Futureheads have been working on their new album ‘Rant’, and much to our surprise it’s strictly a cappella! The four piece Indie Rock band will be doing a complete 180° on their usual stylings to showcase their vocal talents exclusively.

Nul Records – The Futureheads’ own independent label – releases this latest album on the April 2nd coinciding with a UK tour which will feature only a capella and acoustic performances.

The album features a variety of re-arranged Futureheads songs alongside medieval and traditional folk songs. Old hits such as ‘Robot’ and ‘Meantime’ have been transformed to fit into this ‘vocal only’ album.

The Futureheads will be joined on all dates by special guests The Cornshed Sisters, whose album “Tell Tales” is also out in April.

This is a one-of-a-kind tour that may not be repeated, so we’re thrilled to be giving away a pair of tickets to Tastebuds members. If you’re lucky enough to win you’ll be able to choose to see them at one of the following dates:
