Bringing our first season to a close, join legendary Sunderland icons The Futureheads at The Fire Station for a special opportunity to experience a different side to the band – featuring a mix of acoustic and a cappella song arrangements, intricate four-part harmonies and plenty of audience banter. 

Expect a mixture of material from their back catalogue including songs from their 2019 album Powers, coupled with older favourites, some covers, a few traditional songs thrown in for good measure and maybe even some new songs! The Futureheads are in the process of writing a new album, drawing on many of these themes, currently expected for release in 2022. 

As the band themselves put it: Weve missed being able to play live, we havent played a single gig since March 2020, so this is a rare opportunity for us to perform this type of show. The idea behind it is that we can present a different aspect to the band, where we get to talk more about the songs, perform some alternative arrangements with all of us playing a variety of different instruments on the night. These shows give us an opportunity to have some craic with the audience as well. It’s more relaxed and a good laugh”.
