Welsh rockers Future of the Left are returning to the U.S. for a nationwide fall tour in support of their new album, The Plot Against Common Sense, released earlier this summer on Xtra Mile Recordings. Kicking off October 30th in Baltimore, the 3-week run in support of Andrew Jackson Jihad will bring the band to Chicago, Los Angeles, Detroit, Philadelphia and more. More dates will be announced soon!
The Plot Against Common Sense’s release marked the band’s first full-length album release since 2009’s Travels With Myself And Another (though they teased their rabid fanbase with the all too brief EP Polymers Are Forever last fall). It was also the first release with UK-based Xtra Mile Recordings, home to Frank Turner, Against Me!, and more.
The album was widely praised upon its release, garnering acclaim from the likes of SPIN, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork and more. Rolling Stone premiered the video for first single “I Am The Least Of Your Problems”. Similarly, SPIN premiered the video for “Sheena is a T-shirt Salesman" earlier this year.
Recently expanded to a four piece, Future Of The Left's ranks include former Mclusky members Andrew Falkous (vocals and guitar) and Jack Egglestone (drums) as well as ex-Million Dead bass player Julia Ruzicka and Jimmy Watkins (guitar).
