Future Islands have announced a handful of new UK tour dates for 2015, playing their largest headline shows outside of London. Tickets for all shows go on general sale on Friday 13th February. The full list of shows is below.
Further, the Baltimore group will open for Grace Jones at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on 27th September, with tickets onsale on the 3rd May.
Having spent the best part of a decade touring relentlessly and with three albums already under their belt, Future Islands have certainly earned their stripes, but undoubtedly 2014 was a champagne year for the trio with the release of fourth record Singles. Jettisoned by memorable TV performances of Singles opener ‘Seasons (Waiting On You)’ on both sides of the Atlantic ('The Late Show with David Letterman' in February; 'Later...With Jools Holland' in November), the band has won a legion of supporters to add to their already fervent following. Critical accolades poured in for both Singles and ‘Seasons (Waiting On You)’ – the latter crowned Track of the Year by The Guardian, NME, MOJO, Time Out and The Line Of Best Fit.
