Future Of The Left recording new album despite leaving label
Future Of The Left have said that they are going to begin work on a new album next month - despite leaving their record label.

Andy Falkous and his band have parted ways 4AD imprint Too Pure after releasing two albums through them, but has said that they will carry on regardless.

"'Travels [With Myself And Another', their latest album] was, after a difficult gestation period, an album that we are inordinately proud of," said Falkous. "Before the process of starting each record I always say I want to write a pop album and then our personalities get in the way. This time I'm hoping to take the thing full circle and to channel the spirit of Freddie Mercury - not Brian May - through Slayer's backline."

Meanwhile Future Of The Left kick off a UK tour later this month, playing the following dates:

Newcastle Cluny (January 16)
Aberdeen Tunnels (17)
Glasgow King Tut's (18)
Manchester Ruby Lounge (19)
Nottingham Bodega (21)
Sheffield Corporation (23)
Cardiff Clwb Ifor Bach (28)
