SUPER FURRY ANIMALS ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM

Digital release 16th March on the band’s own website - 
www.superfurry.com, physical release 13th April on Rough Trade Records,
21st April for U.S. release.

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 13th 
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 – watch this 
space for more information!

      Their last two albums were pretty good, I’m sure this will be good as well. Hopefully they’ll tour the US in support of this one as well, they’re a fantastic live band.
