Furnace and the Fundamentals unwrap new album, A Very Furnace Christmas!
The time is nigh to deck the halls and start drinking at 11 am, but wait before you hit shuffle on that generic Christmas song playlist – Furnace and the Fundamentals are here to shake things up a bit this holiday season, with a Christmas album that breaks all the rules…
This album follows their biggest UK tour to date, with sell-out shows at venues the likes of the renowned Electric Ballroom in Camden proving that this band can start parties the world over. Being dubbed “humanity’s most exhilarating dance party” is no small feat, and with an album like this, it’s easy to see what earned them that title.
The album contains all the Christmas classics, injected with a little bit of the usual Furnace fun, of course – but also takes and re-works some other songs, such as ‘YMCA’, ‘Killing in the Name’ (renamed ‘Giving in the Name Of’ with new lyrics about the joy of giving and receiving presents) and a carol version of ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’.
This album is sure to turn heads and get everyone in the mood for a jolly festival season, one in which we don’t take ourselves too seriously.

With combined sales of over ONE BILLION records, their immense repertoire spans countless hits, performed with their incredible musicianship and a stunning stage presence.
