Published Oct 12, 2011Way back last December, Welsh noiseniks Future of the Left unveiled a handful of bizarre and punched-up demos, though they didn't have firm plans as to what they would be using them for. Ten months later, the band have announced some of those tunes will be on a forthcoming EP called Polymers Are Forever.
A blog post from singer Andy Falkous confirms that the six-song affair comes out November 14 on UK imprint Xtra Mile and November 11 on Australian label Remote Control. A North American label has yet to attach themselves to the release, but the troupe assures that "an initial small amount of imports being shoveled the way of the USA, that land mass which is a little to the left of Wales."
The back half of the EP, including the previously premiered "My Wife Is Unhappy," are rough demos that Falkous admitted the band want left as is. "We didn't have the time, money or inclination to re-record," he wrote.
The rest of the release is made up of three newly recorded tunes laid down during studio sessions for the outfit's next full-length, tentatively titled The Plot Against Common Sense. While two of the songs will be exclusive to the EP, the track "Polymers Are Forever" will also appear on the LP, which follows 2009's Travels With Myself and Another.
Falkous added that the band are nearly done recording the album and they're super excited to get things rolling.
"We are really VERY VERY HAPPY with this record, which is perhaps ONE DAY away from being finished, whenever we can fit that in; I would like to apologise in advance to my bandmates and the cat for how drunk I get upon its completion."
