Have you heard of the psychedelic indie-poppers, The Zutons, who have been lighting up European festivals since they hit the big time with their 06 single Valerie (covered by both Amy Winehouse and Mark Ronson)? If you have, Im sure youll be surprised to hear that they were dropped from their label, Deltasonic, where The Zutons were arguably the most recognized artist. If you havent, let me be the one to say you should be picking your jaw up off the keyboard. Maybe its just our time to fall out of favor, but well just keep gigging. Thats what we love doing the most, said lead singer Dave McCabe about the split.
Not to worry though, the Liverpool five-piece isnt letting a little label trouble get in the way of touring throughout the summer at some of Europes hottest festivals, including Leicesters Summer Sundae Weekender where theyll be headlining. As for some new material? The Zutons are also on top of that as well. According to saxophonist Abi Harding, Were writing a new album at the moment now were just concentrating on writing. Theres no album title or release date but rest assured, youll be hearing from The Zutons in the near future.
