SUPER FURRY ANIMALS ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM

Digital release 16th March on the band's own website -
www.superfurry.com, physical release 13th April on Rough Trade Records,
21st April for U.S. release.

Super Furry Animals are currently hard at work on their 9th studio album in
Cardiff.. Since 2007's 'Hey Venus' the band have been keeping busy
with their various side projects including Daf and Guto's acclaimed
work as part of The Peth with Rhys Ifans, Cian's forthcoming Acid
Casuals release and Som Bom techno nights in London and of course
Gruff's Mercury nominated work with Neon Neon.

Currently with a tracklisting but without a title the band promise;
"Musically it's based around riffs and grooves we've been playing
around with over the last few years. We have enough now for a whole
album so even though it's still very melodic we thought we could
leave off the acoustic ballads for the time being."

"It's recognisable as a melodic SFA record, but is very focused
musically as a cohesive album. And no country rock as Daf has
developed a pedal steel phobia. Which has confined the great
Nashvillian instrument along with the Saxophone to the banned
instrument directive of the SFA board. there's only one slow number
which isn't slow at all."

Longtime cohorts Pete Fowler will combine with legendary Japanese
artist Tanaami for the album artwork, which is sure to result in a
feast for the eyes.

The album is due for digital release on the 16th March via the bands
own website (www.superfurry.com), the physical following on the 13th
of April on Rough Trade Records.

Super Furry Animals have some more tricks up their sleeve which we
will be announcing a little closer to the release date - watch this
space for more information!

No slow songs, no pedal steel, great titles. My hopes are up in the air.

It's pretty funny how they acknowledge two of the things the haters have been complaining about since Rings Around the World. They're awesome at ballads and country rock shit, so I wouldn't have complained anyway. But it's good they're aware of being in some kind of holding pattern.

I really didn't think that they were in the holding pattern mode, anymore. Hey Venus! was fucking brilliant! Super bien stuff, right there.

Hell yeah it was. Anyone who listened to it and said "Batterseay Odyssey" or "Carbon Dating" was some sort of retread was fucking nuts. Those are two of the crazy-best songs I've heard in years.

Gentlemen, start your boners. 'The very best of Neil Diamond' and "White socks/Flip Flops" better end up being actual song titles.

I feel the need to re-emphasize just how amazing this news is, so I am doing so. Holy fuzz, do I ever hope/pray that they really do wind up releasing those three records, this year...

Oh, and how wonderful is it that there'll finally be a Welsh language track, again? Oh, how it warms me up, inside! :D

1 'The Very Best of Neil Diamond'
"It's about all these houses being destroyed by jets etc. Someone put a Neil Diamond tape on before hand, and you can still hear it playing through the rubble."
02 White Socks/Flip Flops
"It's a song by Bunf [Huw Bunford, guitarist] concerning the type of footwear one needs to write a good novel."
03 Inaugural Trams
"A celebratory anthem regarding the opening of a new tram line in a fictitious utopian mainland Europe town. Featuring a rap in German by a special guest."
04 Sounds Familiar
"It does. But not in the way you think!"
05 Cardiff in the Sun
"Doesn't happen often, would probably sound like this."
06 Where Do You Wanna Go?
07 LLiwiau LLachar
"These are twin songs. If they were cities they would probably be Minneapolis and St. Paul. Lliwiau Llachar means Intensely Bright Colours. With all the synth arpeggios and Daf going nuts on drums it's like the Who or something, would be great theme music for 'CSI Cardiff'."
08 Mountain
"A euphoric glam rock stomp by Cian [Ciaran, keyboardist] that sounds as big as the title, and concerns people turning molehills into extreme sport venues."
09 Moped Eyes
"We've been playing this song live for a couple of years, it's been called 'Hot Clubs' and 'Hot Nuts' in the past. You can see a crude early version on YouTube."
10 Inconvenience
"We've been playing around with this heavy guitar riff for a few years now. It's so heavy it features both Guto [Pryce, bassist] and Bunf on two duelling bass guitars."
11 Crazy Naked Girls
"Bunf wrote this tribute to a Cardiff bar he used to drink in before re-development. It's now a block of unsold 'luxury' flats. It's a song in three parts."
12 Earth
"Anyone who attended a SFA gig on the Hey Venus! tour would know this song. It features very distinct audience participation. You can see numerous versions of it performed from Tokyo to California and beyond on YouTube ."
13 Prick
"This song is built on Cian's Moog groove and builds and builds into a great big house or castle of noise."
