Fuck Buttons come to a major North American market near you!

Fuck Buttons come to a major North American market near you!

Hey, remember Fuck Buttons? It’s been a while right? Well, we just reviewed them yesterday, but other than that, remember? A couple months ago we said they had one coming out this summer. Summer has come and reigned down its oppressive heat and light on us and our reward for surviving (so far) has been granted to us; the follow-up to 2009’s pretty rad Tarot Sport (TMT Review) is called Slow Focus and is currently available from the fine folks at ATP Records.

But you already knew about the album, because you already downloaded it walked away from your computer and went to your local record store to slap some of your hard earned money on the table for a copy of the record like the upstanding citizen you are.

What you probably didn’t know (I only just learned it from the press release I’m using for this news update) is that part of the reason it took so long to come out is that the guys only write music when together in the same room. It’s also their first self-produced record. Fuck Buttoner Andrew Hung said, via the aforementioned press release, “we’ve always had a very specific idea of what our music should sound like and so it became about following the logical path [of producing Slow Focus ourselves].”

And now they’re touring North America this fall. The London-based duo doesn’t get a chance to tour on this side of the pond that often, so check ‘em out while you can. They’re hitting a few major cities and some festivals. Sorry, tertiary markets.
