Super Furry Animals are to play their first two albums in full on a UK and Ireland tour this November and December.
The Welsh band will perform 1996’s ‘Fuzzy Logic’ and 1997’s ‘Radiator’ back-to-back on dates celebrating the reissue of their debut album and a new ‘Best Of’ compilation.
A remastered version of ‘Fuzzy Logic’ will be released on November 4 with a bonus disc of tracks from the band’s archive titled ‘Lost On The Bypass Road’. On the same day, the band will also drop ‘ZOOM! The Best of Super Furry Animals, 1995 – 2016’, which will feature a mix of singles, album tracks, band favourites, B-sides and songs that “somehow strayed out of collective memory, only to be recently rediscovered”.
The band said in a statement: “We were a young family and found ourselves parents to two, boisterous albums, suddenly born between 1996 and 1997. It was our doing; we took full responsibility and endured the sleepless nights. The time goes so fast and they are all grown up now, old enough to be taken on the road again and let them stay up late. Before that excitement begins, we find ourselves rediscovering the thrilling alchemy found in the Fuzzy Logic vault and delve yet deeper to decide what makes the final ‘ZOOM’ collection.”
Full track listings for both the ‘Fuzzy Logic’ reissue and ‘ZOOM’ best of will be announced shortly. Check out the band’s tour dates below.
