New album. New song. Liverpool gig. Getintothis’ Joseph Viney on the Future of the Left’s triangle of good news.
Their last appearance in Liverpool in November 2013 was a typically raucous affair that left instruments scattered, heads pounding and audience members covered in duct tape.
The alt rock heroes-one of the last bastions of truth and honesty in music-have prepped the ground by unveiling new song The Limits of Battleships to put the tip on this triangle of good news.
You’ll never be able to slap the tired epithet “return to form” onto Future of the Left because they’ve never lost the spark to begin with. The Limits of Battleships is a mixture of dank bass and machine-gun drums with Andy “Falco” Falkous’ splatter of sublime-to-ridiculous lyrics draped all over it.
