Super Furry Animals - Dark Days/Light Years

Welsh rock band Super Furry Animals unleash Dark Days/Light Years, their ninth studio album.

The band plan to release the album digitally on their website, on March 16, and marked April 13 as the official physical release through Rough Trade. The new album will feature guess appearance by Franz Ferdinand's Nick McCarthy.

According to the band's MySpace;

"Musically it's based around riffs and grooves we've been playing around with over the last few years. We have enough now for a whole album so even though it's still very melodic we thought we could leave off the acoustic ballads for the time being."

"It's recognisable as a melodic SFA record, but is very focused musically as a cohesive album. And no country rock as Daf has developed a pedal steel phobia. Which has confined the great Nashvillian instrument along with the Saxophone to the banned instrument directive of the SFA board. there's only one slow number which isn't slow at all."
