Listen: The Futureheads release their first new song in seven years 'Jekyll'

@jackwhatley89

The Sunderland band, that turned so many head sin the early noughties indie scene, The Futureheads have shared their first new song in seven years the riff-heavy rock and roll number ‘Jekyll’.

The band announced their return in January and have since released a heap of tour dates, but now we have the first new song since 2012’s ‘Rant’. The track is a powerful number of fast and furious indie-rock licks, coupled with the band’s impossible pacy attitude.

Lead singer Barry Hyde had this to say in a press release: “[It’s] a violent song about my childhood disgust at the grinning, jeering faces of certain fellow primary school students (even the nice ones) whenever there was a playground fight. It left a scar in my psyche that I just can’t shake.

“A song for the animal part of us all. With love from The Futureheads.”
