Cooking Vinyl welcomes post-punk icons The Psychedelic Furs for the release of their first studio album in almost three decades. Following speculation about new material, the album is set for release in 2020.
Since their debut in 1979, The Psychedelic Furs became a pioneering band in the early days of MTV and have had a slew of hits including ‘Love My Way’ and ‘Pretty In Pink’ across 7 studio albums.
The band’s manager, Rob Dillman said “We are thrilled to be working with Martin, Rob, Howie and the entire gang at Cooking Vinyl. The Furs had been contemplating doing new songs for quite some time. The enthusiasm and passion the label has shown for the band and the project made it an easy call…we are very excited to be doing this together.”
Managing Director of Cooking Vinyl Rob Collins has long wanted to work with the pioneering act. He added “It’s been a long-term ambition of mine to work with The Psychedelic Furs, as they’ve made some of my all-time favourite records. That means it’s a particularly personal project for Cooking Vinyl, and makes a unique addition to our roster following a very active period of signings.”
Recently, they’ve been building momentum with shows at the Hollywood Bowl, Meltdown Festival and sharing festival bills with names such as The Killers and Nick Cave. The band are currently headlining a North American tour with James and have announced UK/EU dates for October.
