The Futureheads release brand new EP

And there's news on the new album too

The Futureheads are to close 2005 by releasing an EP featuring three brand new tracks.

The ‘Area’ EP is out on November 28. The title track is already a live favourite, and it’s backed by ‘Help Us Out’, sung by guitarist Ross Millard, and ‘We Cannot Lose’, where vocals are handled by bassist Jaff.

The EP, recorded in September in London and Newcastle, is a stand-alone release for the band as they begin work on their second album due for release in mid 2006.

The band are scheduled to begin recording with producer Ben Hillier in the next few weeks. They aim to have it complete by late January.

The Futureheads support Foo Fighters at the following sold-out arena shows later this year:

Birmingham NEC (December 11)

Glasgow SECC (12)

Manchester MEN (14)

London Earl’s Court (17)

Ireland The Point (20)
