My how time flies.  After just two years, several US and European tours, and one finely crafted debut album, The Futureheads return with their exceptional second offering News and Tributes.  Ranging from dark and melodic (“Thursday”), to crunchy and raucous (“Return of the Berserker”), to just downright fun (“Skip to the End”/“Favours for Favours”), The Futureheads are making their furious mark in a quagmire of seemingly endless albums and faceless bands.  They’re back… and here to stay.
