Future Kings of Spain are not Spanish and they're not in line for any thrones that they know of. What they are is an incendiary three-piece from Dublin, Ireland, who have almost accidentally carved out a reputation as one of the most explosive rock 'n' roll bands in aeons.
Autumn 2003 saw the band relocate to New York to record their debut album, with legendary producer Ted Niceley (Girls Vs Boys, Jawbox, Fugazi) at the controls, along with Eli Janney from Girls Vs Boys, who fell in love with the Future Kings of Spain as soon as he heard them.
The first fruits of this intensive recording session saw the light of day in March 2003, when their second single 'Face I Know' erupted from radio stations across the UK and Ireland, picking up a slew of 'Single of the Week' awards into the bargain. They took to the road once more, building up their fan base across Ireland and the U.K, including hugely successful support tours with Idlewild, Biffy Clyro and Cosmic Rough Riders, as
well as a UK headline tour of their own.
