Today, Brighton rockers FUR are pleased to announce their much-anticipated debut album, “When You Walk Away”, will be released on November 5, 2021 via Boy Pablo’s Norwegian tastemaker label 777 Music.


“When You Walk Away” marks the band’s most fully realised effort to date. FUR, who described their last EP, 2020’s “Facing Home Mixtape”, as a “harmonious meeting of unintentional things”, created a deeply personal yet deliberate and cohesive album that is both contemporary and a homage to traditional rock n roll, a genre the group has continuously gravitated toward. For a band who have seen considerable support building at both press and radio over the last few years, the album has been a long time coming but there’s no doubt, with this set of songs, that “When You Walk Away” has been well worth the wait.

Earlier this summer the band shared the first taster of the new album, “The Fine Line Of A Quiet Life”, a brilliantly insistent slice of indie-pop that paired their trademark melodic gifts to an immediate, modern production. Today, they share the title-track of the album and visual accompaniment directed by Vasilisa Forbes. Vasilisa is a UK-based female director who has previously directed visuals for acts like Hannah Diamond, The Bug and Millie Turner. 



The band’s own Will Murray had the following to say about the album’s title-track and its connections with the record as a whole:

“When You Walk Away Pt I is a hopeful yet reflective statement that opens the album. Drawn from the common axiom ‘when you walk away, don’t turn/look back’ it acts as a personal manifesto that looks to punctuate and frame the themes present on the album. The album deals with the personal and shared experiences we have during the difficult post-coming of age period in our lives, with each song being a snapshot/postcard searching for meaning and trying to make sense of these experiences.

Post-coming of age is a dizzying period of intense change and movement, both internal and external, in which you try to find your place in the world whilst finding yourself within. You may have to walk away from home, familiarity, innocence as well as jobs, relationships and situations that are no good for you while in turn friends and love’s may walk away from you. As someone with a penchant for standing outside of time and dwelling on the past, the songs act as a reminder to be more present and spend less time looking over my shoulder.

When You Walk Away Pt I’s “find someone who loves you and don’t let go / find someone to believe in and let them know” serves as an ode to love and friendship, and hopes to impart small wisdoms in what I have learned through experience and believe to be most important.”

After the pandemic derailed live plans over the last year, the band now return with a series of shows at Reading & Leeds Festival, Live At Leeds, a tour in support of 777 labelmate Boy Pablo and then a significant run of headlining dates in November.
