The Future Has Beens say they are ‘itching to get on stage’ at the John Peel centre in Stowmarket tomorrow night.

The band, made up of singer/guitarist Paul Veal, bass player Ben Hooker and drummer Peter O’Reilly, from Felixtowe, have taken a hiatus from the stage while they work on new material.

Paul said: “We have never played live at the John Peel Centre before and looking at the venue it is very exciting.
“We are itching to get on stage.

“We had a busy year last year with lots of gigs but have quietened down a bit this year But we love playing live, it’s an incredible feeling.”

The band aim to put out another EP this year following the release of a self titled five track debut and a three track follow up ‘Black Death’ last year.

They also have plans to release their first studio album.

Paul said the band’s music comes from getting together in a room and playing through ideas together.

“It is not really one person who brings along a song , it’s very much three people bouncing ideas off each other.

“I think it gives an energy to our songs.

“Our live performance depends on who we are playing to - we like to react the audience.”

Asked to describe what the crowd should expect, Paul said: “A loud, sweaty plane crash.”

The band have upcoming gigs at Swanfest in Ipswich on Sunday July 27 and at Homegrown Festival at Barrow Academy on Friday August 29.
