SFA to Record New Album After UK Tour
SUPER FURRY ANIMALS will start recording their seventh studio album after their Spring UK tour.
The band, who release an collection of remixes from their 'Phantom Power' album on April 12, have been touring the world over the last year - but they aim to go straight to work as soon as their tour is finished.
Drummer Dafydd Ieuan told the Salisbury Journal: "On the last album we had about 44 songs in various stages of completion, so we had to choose 14 to record that we thought would work together as an album.
"There's surplus from that album and even more have come along. We have our own studio in Cardiff so it's a bit easier to take your time when you know that time is not money.
"You can go back and change things, or scrap a week's worth of work without thinking that you are wasting a fortune."
The full list of the band's UK/Ireland shows is as follows:
Liverpool Royal Court (March 27)
Dublin Olympia (28)
Edinburgh Corn Exchange (30)
Middlesbrough Town Hall (31)
Sheffield Octagon (April 1)
Cardiff International Arena (2)
Nottingham Rock City (4)

Photos from the Vancouver & Seattle shows
We just got back from the Vancouver and Seattle shows. They were both amazing! We've posted the photos here: Seattle or Vancouver. In Seattle Gruff made a trip to the bar during Juxtaposed to get a round of drinks for the band, it was hilarious! Yep, that is Chris' visor that Gruff is wearing on the way back from the bar. The crowd in Seattle was incredible and we met some new furry friends in Vancouver. It was a real treat to meet Cian after the Seattle show and he signed a press photo for me, great guy. Great to chat with the sound guy (can't remember his name Andy? Ian? and thanks for the setlist)! Briefly speaking to Gruff in Vancouver was ace!
