Revitalised Welsh rockers Future Of The Left confirm new songs and a release date for album number three.
On the verge of the fifth show ever for the two new members – bassist Julia Ruzicka and guitarist Jimmy Watkins – Julia and frontman Andy “Falco” Falkous from Future Of The Left step in for an extended, illuminating chat with Undercover.
The band have been putting new songs up online, and Falco confirms that ‘Notes On Achieving Orbit’ and ‘I Am The Least Of Your Problems’ will be on the next album.
The other previewed track ‘Your Wife Is Unhappy’ will not.
Falco explains, “It’s a very nice song, it’s got a lovely atmosphere, it’s just that we’ve been writing songs that are a little bit like that which are far more successful at mining that particular seam.”
As for the release of album number three, they stumble about and settle on September this year.
“It just needs to be recorded,” Falco says. “It’s pretty much written and we hope to have it out just past the British summer, if it even indeed deserves that name. Then back touring and hopefully being back here [in Australia] for next summer.”
Check out this meandering conversation, which touches on failed New Years Resolutions, their enormously patchy popularity, why Brighton sucks, how bands that are influenced by them never sound quite right, and many other diversions.
