NEW FOTL ALBUM OUT IN AUSTRALIA 25 OCTOBER 2013

Regular visitors to Australia, Future of the Left are contractually obliged to tell you that their fourth studio album “how to stop your brain in an accident” will be released on 25th October 2013 through Prescriptions/Remote Control.

Recorded by Charlie Francis (R.E.M, The Noisettes, Sweet Baboo) at the prestigious Monnow Valley Studios in Monmouth, and mastered by Sean Magee at Abbey Road Studios, it contains fourteen songs and runs to/at/on 46 minutes, all of which are completely necessary. if you are alive and even vaguely in love with the idea of rock music being more than an ersatz lifestyle choice then it is clearly their best album yet. Yes, they would say that.  No, it’s not open to debate.

The album is also accompanied by mini album, Human Death, which was recorded during the same album session. It is available on the same release date and sold separately. The 6 songs on this are by no means lesser in quality. They are album worthy but simply did not fit on the record. After an extremely prolific period of writing the band wanted to record as much as possible, hence these additional songs in the form of this extra mini album.

NEW VIDEO: FUTURE OF THE LEFT – ‘I AM THE LEAST OF YOUR PROBLEMS’

Rolling Stone have premiered Future Of The Left’s new video for single ‘I Am The Least Of Your Problems’, taken from new album The Plot Against Common Sense.

Lead singer/guitarist Andy “Falco” Falkous told Rolling Stone about the video:

“We wanted something claustrophobic and full of movement, but most specifically, something that would weed out the epileptics in the audience,” jokes Falkous. “In all seriousness, I have an undue fascination with strobe lighting, much to my bandmates’ extreme displeasure. When I was in college I bought a small one for ‘personal use’ and used to sit in my room writing songs to its largely similar patterns. They were great, if slightly disorientating, days.”

STREAM FUTURE OF THE LEFT NEW ALBUM IN FULL!

Future of the Left will release their highly anticipated new album The Plot Against Common Sense on 8 June 2012 via Remote Control.

But before it is released, you can STREAM the album in its entirety HERE thanks to SPIN.

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.

In addition, the band has released a radio podcast featuring frontman Andy Falkous and guitarist Jimmy Watkins. The duo discuss the new record, play tracks off the album, goof around and debut a non-album track, ‘Home Taping Is Killing Me Susan’. Listen to the podcast below:

FUTURE OF THE LEFT TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM ‘THE PLOT AGAINST COMMON SENSE’

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.

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.
