Biography

Sunderland, England, United Kingdom (2000 – present)

The Futureheads are a post-punk band which incorporates elements of into their music. They were formed in 2000 in Sunderland, England, United Kingdom or more specifically, in Barry’s garage. The line-up of the band at that point was Jaff (Bass, Vocals), Barry Hyde (Guitar, Vocals), Ross Millard (Guitar, Vocals), and Peter Brewis (Drums, Vocals), now of cerebral pop-masterpiece-makers Field Music.

After playing countless hometown shows, the Futureheads took the show on the road with a massive helping hand from Slampt RecordsMilky Wimpshake. A tour of Squats and Youth Centres in Central Europe came in summer 2001, due to which the band switched out drummers. In place of Peter Brewis ambled a young pretender, Mr David Hyde (Drums, Vocals).

Several singles followed - the first, Nul Book Standard, can now be seen casually hanging out on eBay from time to time. A relationship with the lovely people at Fantastic Plastic briefly followed. ‘The Futureheads’ was released in summer 2004, on 679 Recordings, and then the band hit the road. Some highlights of 2005 include playing Glastonbury Festival on Baz’s birthday, Hounds Of Love going Top Ten, meeting Dennis Hopper on Jimmy Kimmel’s US TV Show, and getting that most infamous of Albatrosses, The Second Album under their belts.
