Future of the Left will release their highly anticipated new album The Plot Against Common Sense on 8 June 2012 via Remote Control.
Fronted by Andy Falkous (ex McLusky), Future of the Left continue to expose their sharp wit and well directed vitriol, and have been praised for their unrelenting live shows, packed with ferocious energy and intensity.
Featuring 49.8 minutes of singing, shouting, slinking, smashing and (at times) sobbing, The Plot Against Common Sense follows the release of their 2011 EP Polymers Are Forever.
Recently expanded to a four-piece, initially as a bet, the band originally conceived the record as a Broadway musical based on the recent British phone-hacking scandal but were forced to abandon this idea due to budgetary restrictions. This is not a joke. After writing hundreds of songs, fifteen were recorded and placed into an order deliberately selected to exhibit the full dynamic range of the experience, a gift which will be lost to anybody who regularly utilitises the shuffle function on their mp3 player.
From the upcoming summer of sport (‘Failed Olympic Bid’) to the creative bankruptcy of the movie industry (‘Robocop 4 – Fuck Off Robocop’), urban outfitted riots (‘City of Exploded Children’) and the gigantic rumbling mediocrity of celebrity culture (‘Notes on Achieving Orbit’), The Plot Against Common Sense is a mostly very loud condemnation of many things, some of which are very easy targets indeed.
