The third day of The Cluny Tenth Anniversary Weekender sees a very special show from The Futureheads, who were the first band to sell the venue out after The Head Of Steam Limited’s takeover back in 2002. To celebrate this milestone, at this gig The Futureheads will be performing their 2004, self-titled debut. This year, The Futureheads have been promoting and touring their fifth album, the entirely a capella Rant, which has received rave reviews despite being a departure from the Sunderland band’s usual post-punk. A rare occurrence in recent months, this will be a fully electric show.
Tickets for this event will be limited to two per person

“The best band to come out of Sunderland” - NME
“The band launch into some of their best work to date” - The Sun *****
The Futureheads are a four piece post punk band from Sunderland. Their eponymous debut album was released in September 2004. Gang Of Four’s Andy Gill produced five tracks and super producer Paul Epworth produced the rest. Their second single, ‘Hounds Of Love’ was named Best Single of 2005 by NME. In 2005 the band parted ways with their record label 679 Recordings due to creative differences and have gone on to self-release two more studio albums ‘This Is Not The World’ and ‘The Chaos’. ‘The Chaos’ received critical acclaim in the UK press with News Of The World giving it 4/5 and calling it ‘Indie at its very best’.
YOUNG LIAR are a five-piece instrumental rock band based in Newcastle Upon Tyne. Since forming in mid-2010 for what was originally planned as a one-off gig they have performed across the UK and supported the likes of Three Trapped Tigers, I Like Trains, The Twilight Sad, Errors, Male Bonding, Eagulls and Ice Age.

YOUNG LIAR followed up the success of their debut 2011 release with their second EP which picked up support from Radio 1's Jen Long & BBC 6 Music's Gideon Coe. While EP1 had all the trademarks of traditional guitar based post-rock, their current sound, and that of EP2, also incorporates elements of electronica, noise-rock, krautrock and post-punk. Recent press has drawn comparisons to everyone from Neu!, My Bloody Valentine and Explosions In The Sky, to Spacemen 3, Errors and Nine Inch Nails.
