New Super Furry Album!

Holy shit!


Digital release 16th March on the band’s own website – www.superfurry.com
Physical release April 21 on Rough Trade Records
Rough Trade Records are delighted to announce that Super Furry Animals are currently hard at work on their 9th studio album in Cardiff.. Since 2007’s ‘Hey Venus’ the band have been keeping busy with their various side projects including Daf and Guto’s acclaimed work as part of The Peth with Rhys Ifans, Cian’s forthcoming Acid Casuals release and Som Bom techno nights in London and of course Gruff’s Mercury nominated work with Neon Neon.
Currently with a tracklisting but without a title the band promise; “Musically it’s based around riffs and grooves we’ve been playing around with over the last few years. We have enough now for a whole album so even though it’s still very melodic we thought we could leave off the acoustic ballads for the time being.”
“It’s recognisable as a melodic SFA record, but is very focused musically as a cohesive album. And no country rock as Daf has developed a pedal steel phobia. Which has confined the great Nashvillian instrument along with the Saxophone to the banned instrument directive of the SFA board. there’s only one slow number which isn’t slow at all.”
Longtime cohorts Pete Fowler will combine with legendary Japanese artist Tanaami for the album artwork, which is sure to result in a feast for the eyes.
The album is due for digital release on the 16th March via the bands own website (www.superfurry.com), the physical following on the 21st of April on Rough Trade Records.
Super Furry Animals have some more tricks up their sleeve which we will be announcing a little closer to the release date!
