The Futureheads have made a record with no instruments at all. It is called 'Rant', and it is strictly a cappella.
Set for an April 2nd release through their own label, Nul Records, 'Rant' will feature a variety of re-arranged Futureheads songs alongside medieval and traditional folk songs. The release will be accompanied by a UK tour which will feature only a capella and acoustic performances, including a show at London's picturesque Union Chapel.
The tracklist for 'Rant' is as follows:
2. Meet Me Halfway (The Black Eyed Peas cover)
4. Beeswing (Richard Thompson cover)
6. Sumer Is Icumen In (Traditional)
7. The Keeper (Traditional)
8. The No. 1 Song in Heaven (Sparks cover)
9. The Old Dun Cow (Traditional)
10. Acapella (Kelis cover)
11. Man Ray
Bonus: Heartbeat Song (Digital only)
