The Future Now “Hangman/The Runway” 7″ Pre-orders is up.

Gainesville’s The Future Now return with a triumphant follow-up to last year’s “Hazy Orange Sunday” with two songs that delve further into 90’s alt-rock worship while adding a jarring heaviness to their sound. On the A side, “Hangman” navigates the shadows between “Bleach” and “Nevermind” with a thick, aggressive lead, while the B side offers a mellower and melodic number reminiscent of Dinosaur Jr or The Lemonheads.

Track Listing:
1. Hangman
2. The Runaway

First Pressing: 500 copies on swirly black vinyl

Free instant digital download with pre-order!

What people are saying about “Minor World”

“On the 42-minute Minor World, the power trio give us their first masterpiece; the 10-song collection sounds premeditated, complete and seamless” -Alternative Press

“All these sections are beautifully written and executed, all powerful reminders we’re listening to a band that wields top-notch musicianship.”

“You’ll buzz from the stomach-pit butterflies, and then you’ll have the rug pulled out from under you. But, of course… you’ll go back for more.”
