Football, etc announce December tour & album release
The prospect of music inspired by football sounds pretty intriguing to us – I mean, where would we be without New Order’s World in Motion?
But 90s pop classics aside, US band Football, etc have clearly taken to the subject matter with aplomb, even naming themselves after the game (though in their case it’s the American variety, but we’ll forgive them that.)
Football, etc purvey an angular, metallic brand of rock with the added bite of an empowered female vocal line. It's the stuff of dark underground indie nights and college radio, with throwbacks to early Strokes.
The band’s debut album The Draft is available on Amazon now.
Their UK tour dates are as follows:
Dec. 28, 2011 Ipswich @ The Swan
Dec. 29, 2011 Manchester @ The Castle Hotel
Dec. 30, 2011 Dundee @ Kage
