The Futureheads will release a totally a capella album titled Rant on April 2nd via their own Nul Records. The first single and double a-side "Meet Me Halfway"/"The Number 1 Song In Heaven" will be released on the same day. Speaking of the new direction, guitarist Ross Millard said:
If we were gonna carry on making music, we needed to change it up. Making another Futureheads record as per usual wasn’t something that appealed to us. We’ve always been a four-part harmony group; it’s been a massive part of the genetics of this band.
