Ross has been updating the website in the form of a tour diary. Go read it. My voice was starting to sound like Geri Halliwell Tehehe...

You can see the 'heads performance (or some of it, I'm not sure) at T In The Park by visiting .

Go to the
NME website to view the newest video clip for Worry About it Later. Features Barry in a lovely checkered-like shirt and a vest.

There's also an exclusive remix of Fallout on their MySpace page so go check it out.

Because I'm back at work after a 4 1/2 day weekend... [July 05, 2006 @ 10:17am]

Hello everyone! *waves*

You know how Barry often doesn't photograph well? Can you dig out your pics of him where he looks awesomefantastic? It would really cheer me up and make the day more enjoyable... (It's pouring and looks like it's night instead of morning. :()

Is there someone/place where all the b-sides/rarities are listed/downloadable?
I've poked around this and other communities, am I missing something?
ok well thanks! :D

Haven't had any time to update due to my ol' friend, exams.

Yes, the album did come out recently in the UK (I'm personally still waiting). So go buy it!

The official site is now fully (almost) back online! It's quite fun actually, as you can move around the boxes and the like. There's also new snazzy photos and a new 'Tributes' section.

The boys will be touring extensively in the USA with The French Kicks and Tapes N'Tapes, so go buy your ticket and don't miss out.

That's it folks!

I've already posted this over at musicfordummies community, but I though I best share it over here with all you lovely fellow 'heads fans as well, although part of me thinks you may have already got your dirtymitts on it! Enjoy if you don't have, and if you, just what do you make of it? I'm dying to hear the opinions of other Futureheads fangirls/andguys on the new material; first impressions? stand-out tracks? possible singles? I vote we open a park_inn debate on the matter!

The Futureheads are doing a few tribute tours, to coincide with their upcoming album, News and Tributes! They'll be picking an artists for theme for each night; play their songs and hand out flyers on why they're giving them a tribute.

Remaining dates:

Northampton Soundhaus - March 7
Nottingham Rescue Rooms - March 8
Colchester Arts Centre - March 9
Stoke Sugarmill - March 10

Ross has written on the official forum:
Afternoon everybody,
It's Ross. I know it's been a while, and for that, I apologise. Big time. None of us are really that hot on the old computer, but that's no excuse, and something we'll be doing everything to get on top of upon release of the new record/website/tour stuff etc.
Anyway - I see the tour details have been released. This 'secret' tour is something we're really excited about doing, and getting back to some of the smaller places to play the new songs for the first time will hopefully be a bit of an 'emotional rollercoaster' (to coin Cheryl Tweedy's phrase) for all concerned. Please don't be bummed out if we aren't playing locally to you - it's been difficult to choose where to play, and the dates we are doing are generally in places we've played only once or twice before.
Obviously, upon release of the record in late May, there will be a decently-sized tour to accompany it, taking in a lot of the UK and Ireland. This small tour is mainly for us to air the new material to British fans for the first time, and make it a memorable experience in the process. Our good friends from the North, Kubichek! will be the support for the tour. Good luck to all of those who are heading out tomorrow for tickets, and believe me, if there was anything I could do to stop touts, then I'd do it - but I really don't believe they'll be playing too much of a part in this tour, given its size.
And the album will be called 'News And Tributes'. Please, this is not up for discussion. It's fair that some people may not think the name to be very good, but until anyone can listen to the record in context and see how the name fits, I don't think much criticism is justified. We write the songs, and therefore we're free to label them as we see fit. I hope you like them, because we think it's a million times better than the first record, though quite far from it in terms of how it sounds. In a live capacity, the support of the fans will be of paramount importance in generating the same euphoric feelings we experienced in touring the first record, and we're looking forward to playing these new songs to the crowd who care so much about hearing the new material. Thanks again for caring about the music and the band enough to keep regularly posting on the forum, and apologies for the lack of updates - which will hopefully be rectified very soon (we're still in the process of getting the new artwork together). After all, the only reason any band is able to make music their living is because of fans like you remaining loyal and keeping interested through periods of inactivity - so never assume your voice doesn't make a difference to the band or individuals you're trying to reach.
Thanks a lot for now - Again, good luck in getting those tickets, and we'll hopefully be seeing each other very soon, eh?

Ross XXX

Oh me gosh, exciting news!


The Futureheads are currently putting the finishing touches to their eagerluy-awaited second album, 'News And Tributes'.

The follow-up to the band's self-titled 2004 debut is due for release in the May, and the band gave NME.COM a sneak preview of the record, which was recorded with producer Ben Hillier (Blur, Elbow) in just five-and-a-half weeks in the Yorkshire countryside.

"It's a progression, things are slightly different," explained bassist Jaff of the new record. "For me it's the singing, the accents and attitude are the same but it's a lot less cluttered."

With stand-alone single 'Area' coming out late last year, many have been surprised by the speed in which this album has been recorded.

"It worked out really well," said Jaff. "Because we started in October, it was like 'Right, we may as well try and get finished before Christmas.'"

The band's speed was partly due to the lack of distractions to be found on the Yorkshire moors where they recorded the album.

"It was remote, but not far away from civilization," said frontman Barry Hyde. "We were in this amazing farmhouse in the hills. No mobile reception or anything. It had different weather, it had its own eco-system! It was cold though, no central heating, just a coal fire."

Tracks set for inclusion on the new album include 'Fallout', 'Skip To The End', 'Face', 'Worry About It Later', 'Return Of The Berserker' and the title track, which the band explained was inspired by the 1958 Munich air disaster, which killed several young Manchester United players.

For more on this story, see this week's NME (dated February 18).

Oh how exciting! We shall soon have the 'heads second album in out hot little hands. Here we come May!

News from Futureheads land!

Taken from NME.com

Posting on their official site, the band have revealed they have been working with Blur and Doves producer Ben Hiller at a farm in Scarborough, north Yorkshire.

The band have also taken advantage of recording in a different environment to what they're used to.

They said: "(The producers) set up their equipment in the house and in various outbuildings and went to work, taking advantage of the different spaces to achieve different sounds with their instruments...guitars in the greenhouse and drums in the barn!"

Provisional new songs titles revealed are:
'Return Of The Beserker'

The 'heads had a secret gig in Sunderland on the 10th Feb and played all songs from the forthcoming album from start to finish. Apparently it's tops.
