Kartel are proud to introduce Xtra Mile Recording's new signings Future Of The Left
Future of the Left were formed by singer/guitarist Andy "Falco" Falkous and drummer Jack Egglestone, both previously of Cardiff band mclusky, alongside singer/bassist Kelson Mathias, formerly of the Ammanford-based group Jarcrew. The band formed in mid-2005 and was signed to Too Pure who had also signed Mclusky, however the umbrella company Beggars Group disbanded Too Pure, transferring the band to 4AD. The band released their debut single, the double A-side "Fingers Become Thumbs/The Lord Hates A Coward" (along with B-side The Fibre Provider) on 7" vinyl on 29 January 2007 in extremely limited quantities. Their debut album, Curses, was released on 24 September 2007 in the UK and 1 October in Japan and they released their second album Travels with Myself and Another on 22 June 2009.
On 7 May 2010, Kelson Mathias announced his departure from the band via a blog on the band's MySpace profile. On the same day, in a separate blog, Andy Falkous announced that Steven Hodson (the bass player of Oceansize and Kong) would be filling-in on bass for their upcoming shows and also that the band had a "soon-to-revealed fourth member. The band played summer dates around the UK and were also working on new material for a third album, playing a few new tracks at these date. Julia Ruzicka, ex-member and co-founder of Million Dead made her live debut with the band on 17 September.
Now they are back via Xtra Mile Recordings with the release of an EP, titled 'Polymers are Forever' out on the 14th of November. More information about this will follow.
