Friendly Fires have announced a UK and European tour for October and November 2019. You can check out the full schedule below.
The St Albans indie outfit detailed their new album, Inflorescent, last month, which will be their first full-length in over eight years. It’s set to arrive on 16 August and contains the previously-released tracks, ‘Love Like Waves’, ‘Heaven Let Me In’, and ‘Silhouettes’.
The band returned to Ed Macfarlane’s parents’ St. Albans garage where they recorded some of their earliest songs and reconnected “with the hardcore records they’d bonded over as teenagers,” as inspiration for the new album. The band debuted their new single ‘Silhouettes’ on Radio 1’s Future Sounds with Annie Mac, a song with a clear nod towards the Brazilian disco records the band have always loved.
After making their live return last year with a string of intimate shows, the group recently performed at festivals such as Glastonbury, Citadel, and Isle of Wight 2019.
Off the back of a successful summer, UK and European headline dates have now been confirmed for this autumn. The tour will begin at London’s iconic Roundhouse venue in Camden, before making stops in Birmingham, Manchester, and Dublin. Friendly Fires will then head to Europe, with shows scheduled for Berlin, Paris, and Amsterdam. Tickets go on general sale Friday, 26 July at 10am. Visit the band’s official website for further information.
Speaking of last year’s comeback dates, the band’s Jack Savidge said: “We wanted to make these shows more ‘party’ than ‘gig’ as an experience… we’ve done that in the past with our Coronet and Brixton late-night shows back in the day.”
