Friendly Fires Could Release New Material Under A New Name

According to  Friendly Fires' frontman, Ed MacFarlane the band could release new music under a different name due to the direction their new material is moving in.

Speaking to the Sunday Mirror, MacFarlane has said that new music he is working on with his bandmates is  not sounding like anything the group have produced to date, meaning they could be unleashed on the general public under a new name at some stage in the future.

"We've been working on eight-minute long tracks that don’t sound anything like what we do now," he said. 

Macfarlane has also expressed that he's comfortable with the concept of releasing the material under a new moniker: "The music is what it's all about for us so if it means we release under a different name then that’s fine."

The news come after a previous word from the band that they won't be recording material until they have something 'distinct' on paper. After some time in the studio, the band announced that they had goodies to offer the fans, describing that "We've been tentatively putting together new music. We're working on quite a few things and we need to finish those off. It sounds a bit more thoughtful, a bit more downbeat, it's still quite fast, but it's krauty. We'll see what happens once we've pulled it all together."
