Though celebrated as the modern equivalent of the Fall, Future of the Left is slightly less geometric and far more invitingly schizophrenic. Its songs are unpredictable, veering from clunky, sneering mania into refined alterna-noise, all while maintaining hooks and a dark sense of humor. The lyrics can be cuttingly honest and wry but sharply observant, earning Future of the Left high praise as the Bill Hicks of bands. Featuring members of Million Dead, Strange News From Another Star and underground indie-hero Mclusky, the Cardiff-based quartet tours the United States every few years, bringing with it a commandingly loud and tight show.

Bonus: The opening bands are local favorites the Humanoids and the Livers.
