Future Of The Left Announce Live Dates – Plus An Update On Their PledgeMusic Campaign

Yesterday, via both their Pledgemusic account & their Facebook page, Future Of The Left announced a string of live dates for later in the year to support the release of their new album, “How To Stop Your Brain In An Accident”, due to drop in November.

A few weeks ago FOTL, the Cardiff based band formed out of the ashes of Peel favourites Mclusky & currently consisting of Andrew Falkous, aka Falco (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Jimmy Watkins (guitar), Julia Ruzicka (bass) and Jack Egglestone (drums), started a funding campaign for their new album How To Stop Your Brain In An Accident via Pledgemusic. Incredibly they hit their target in less than six hours, rendering news items by the likes of the press pointless! Granted said target was quite modest but it still needed over 700 pledges from their loyal fanbase to raise the funds so they can record the album the way they want to. The songs, we’re reliably informed, have already been written.

Despite having reached their target the campaign is still open & is currently standing at 237% complete. Needless to say the more money they receive the better the recording will be so you’re encouraged to carry on pledging. Pledges start at just £8 for which you get the album, a four track download EP &, of course, regular updates. You will, for instance, be the first to hear about about any new live dates added to those already announced.

Guy is a former full time member of the Louder Than War editorial team, who's since moved on to pastures new. Music's been a large part of his life since he first stumbled across Peel on his tranny as a fifteen year old. His whole approach to music was learnt from Peel in fact, which includes having as inclusive a taste in music as possible. Guy devotes most of his time looking for new music & although he's been known to say "the only good music is new music" he pretty much accepts this is bollocks. Favourite band The Minutemen.
