The Futureheads to celebrate 10th anniversary by selling limited-edition prints for charity
David Shrigley, Pete Fowler and Stuart Semple are among the artists who have taken part
FH10 will see a number of artists, including David Shrigley and Pete Fowler, reinterpret one of the group's album covers.
"For us, FH10 is a brilliant way of us celebrating ten years of making music together," guitarist and vocalist Ross Millard said. "[It's] new life breathed into our back catalogue by four artists whose work we have admired from afar for many years."
"We wanted to celebrate our first decade in a creative way," he continued. "Not by slobbering over a few pints, desperately trying to recall venues we played back in the early days, but by looking toward the future by giving birth to something new – having new creations to enjoy and shout about."
Each of the prints will be signed by the artist, limited to 100 copies and available to buy from December 6. Priced at £50, all proceeds will go to support St. Oswald's Hospice.

The Futureheads will also play Newcastle's O2 Academy on December 23 to mark their 10-year anniversary as a band.
