    Release Notes

    Its easy to forget the trajectory of stardom this Sunderland
    four-piece were on before they dropped 2006s esoteric News and
    Tributes: the bands second album, and a befuddling listen if youd
    been reared on the student disco fodder of their eponymous 2004 debut
    Singer Barry Hyde summed it up at the time: It was almost like we made
    our fifth album second, like we jumped ahead of ourselves
    Nevertheless, fans smiled and thought: Cant wait to hear album number

    See, The Futureheads always had more nous, more range, more brains than
    their indie punk peers. Remember that this is a band whose early gigs
    saw them dressed as robots, a la Devo, and miming along to their songs
    on a tour of German squats like a new-wave boyband

    While 2008s This Is Not the World (their first for own Nul label after
    leaving 679) tried gallantly to marry their passion for art-school
    weird and rent-paying big tunes, there was always the hope amongst
    their fanbase that the band might give up on their commercial dreams,
    instead ploughing the oddness that always set them apart from the pack

    Album number four delivers on that hope. The Baron pairs bee
    swarm-style Thurston Moore guitars with the innovative studio smarts of
    Queen at their most thrillingly pompous, while, XTC-indebted hooks and
    crooks aside, Jupiter is a telling reminder that there are few better
    bands at structuring four-part harmonies than them. Then theres Sun
    Goes Down, the groups most unnerving moment to date, Hydes guitar
    prowling within a maze of fug and sleaze. The sun goes down, he
    gasps, and the double life begins. Its a one way ticket to the city
    of sin. Its less Decent Days and Nights, more Decent Nights and
    Tormented Early Mornings

    With fitting perverseness the album might even reward them with their
    most legitimate pop hit to date. Lead single Heartbeat Song would have
    glistened even within the pop-heavy tracklisting of their first album
    One can only hope its inevitable mainstream success will fund Britains
    most interesting guitar bands ongoing expedition of weirdness
