The Futureheads Get Their French Kicks
May 04, 2006
Story by: Matt Pullman
Recent Vagrant/StarTime signees the Futureheads have announced a batch of US shows with Brooklyn's French Kicks. The first leg of the tour kicks off June 16 in Seattle, WA and ends July 1 in Boston. The Futureheads will then continue their stateside trek with recent XL signees Tapes 'N Tapes. The British band will also rock the masses with their quirky pop madness at July's Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago and the Street Scene Music Festival in San Diego early August.

The Futureheads are preparing to release their second longplayer, News And Tributes in the US June 13. The French Kicks are also putting the finishing touches on their next full-length Two Thousand, which should see a July release via StarTime. And Tapes 'N Tapes, whose debut was self-released last fall, will get an XL rerelease July 25.
