Sunderland post-punk band The Futureheads have premiered the video for their new single "Listen, Little Man!".
The second single to be taken from the forthcoming self-produce album 'Power' out on August 30th. Pre-order your copy here.
Speaking about the video, the band said: “It has a perfect balance between lightheartedness and menace, which marries very well with the concept of the song. Playing with the micro and the macro and highlighting the insanity that the human race is sometimes gripped by!”.

The 13-track album, was recorded and mixed by Luigi Pasquini in Anchor Lane Studios in Glasgow in spring 2019, and will be out on September 27th via Upset The Rhythm. Pre-order your copy here.
The songs on ‘Carnage Hall’, were all written in Glasgow between 2016-2018. Following on from the independence referendum and the subsequent Brexit vote these songs couldn’t help but be influenced by the maelstrom of political hypocrisy and confusion in the air. Other themes prevalent on this energetic corkscrew of an album include the offbeat happenchance of life in 2019, notions of surveillance, identity (personal as well as the biscuit-tin styled persona of the Scottish Highlands), industrialisation and family. There’s a lot of room left for things to turn quietly surreal too. Title track ‘Carnage Hall’ is about an alternative dimension in which Judy Garland’s famous Carnegie Hall show, (one of the group’s favourite albums), was a total bust rather than the roaring success it proved to be. In deciding to call the record ‘Carnage Hall’ the band wanted to reflect on this “deeply uncertain and deeply unstable, odd political time… maybe we are all in an alternative dimension, all living in the Carnage Hall at this moment” alludes band member Cal Donnelly.
