Future Islands have detailed a special show in Carrboro, North Carolina on 26th July to celebrate their 1000th gig.
The band said “ever since our first show at a house party in Greenville, NC back on February 12, 2006, we've kept a detailed tour history that lists every show we've ever played. On July 26 of this year, we will play our 1000th show as Future Islands. For this special show, we'll return to North Carolina, the state that we've played the most through the years (150+ shows). The show will be at the Carrboro Commons in Carrboro, NC. We hope you'll join us for this milestone show!”
The line-up for the day includes Dan Deacon, Ed Schrader's Music Beat, Valient Thor, and Lonnie Walker. Tickets for Future Islands' 1000th show will go on-sale today at 12pm ET. You can buy tickets here.
This weekend the band performed at Governors Ball, before heading to Europe next week for a string of dates including a show at Hyde Park in London with The Strokes and Back, and a debut performance at Glastonbury at the end of June. In April, they returned to The Late Show with David Letterman to perform new single 'The Chase' on one of the show’s final broadcasts. The track was released as a double A-side with another new song 'Haunted By You'. You can listen to the new songs below.
