Band carrying on without record label

Future Of The Left have revealed they plan to start work on a new album next month, despite recently leaving their record label.

Although the band have departed 4AD following the release of their album Travels With Myself And Another, singer Andy Falkous has claimed that they are preparing to work on new material.

"Travels...was, after a difficult gestation period, an album that we are inordinately proud of," he said.

"Before the process of starting each record I always say I want to write a pop album and then our personalities get in the way. This time I'm hoping to take the thing full circle and to channel the spirit of Freddie Mercury - not Brian May - through Slayer's backline."
