HEADS LOOK TO THE FUTURE

After an "overwhelming" time supporting Franz Ferdinand, the bonkers pop outfit say they'll be back...

The Futureheads will head to the US for their second stateside tour in November.

Currently the band are on the final leg of their debut tour of the US and Canada, which has seen them support Franz Ferdinand. That trip will end October 1 in Toronto, but guitarist/vocalist Ross Millard told NME.COM they’ll return soon.

“We’re coming back in November to do our own shows which will be great ‘cause they will be small clubs,” he said. “It will be good because no one has a clue who we are.”

The Sunderland quartet say touring America with Franz Ferdinand has been overwhelming, having never thought they’d get beyond the North of England.

“I don’t think until two-and-a-half years ago we thought we’d get to play anywhere outside of our home town anyway,” he said. “Considering no one knows who we are, it’s [been] quite a warm welcome.”

Dates for their next trip are currently being finalised, but Millard says the band are hoping there will be time in their November schedule to hit the southern California version of All Tomorrow’s Parties, November 6-7 currently being curated by Modest Mouse.

He stated: “I’m kind of hoping we have a few days off around the same time as All Tomorrow’s Parties so we can check out some of our favourite bands like Modest Mouse and Built to Spill.”
