Preview: Future Of The Left @ The O2 Academy
If you like your hardcore smart, melodic and witheringly sarcastic, you probably like Future Of The Left, the best band out of Wales since McLusky (which just happens to be frontman Andy Falkous’ previous, brilliant band). In which case, the fact that they’re playing Newcastle soon will get you jumping up and down on the spot like an overexcited kid.
They come to the O2 Academy on Sunday 10th June, promoting their new album The Plot Against Common Sense, out the following day. You only need to see the song titles (Failed Olympic Bid, Robocop 4 – Fuck Off Robocop, City Of Exploded Children) to know that Falkous is still gleefully laying into mediocrity and ‘sleb culture with the same venom as ever, something that current, utterly blistering single Sheena Is A T-shirt Salesman, confirms.
The fact that FOTL have expanded to a 4-piece (including former Million Dead bassist) means they’re an even more relentless live act than ever, and with reliable rumours that the new album is their best yet, you’d be an arse to miss this one.
