Future Islands - Future Islands Announce New Album And Tour Dates
Future Islands : Future Islands Announce New Album And Tour Dates
8th January 2014

On 25th March 2014, Future Islands will release Singles, their debut album for 4AD.

The Baltimore trio consists of enigmatic frontman Sam Herring, bassist/guitarist William Cashion and keyboardist/guitarist/programmer Gerrit Welmers. Herring’s poetic tales of heartbreak, love and loss are finally up front and in high fidelity, thanks in part to a newfound creative partnership with producer Chris Coady (Beach House, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Grizzly Bear).  You can see the tracklisting and artwork for Singles here.

Future Islands will embark on a short tour in February, including sold-out shows lined up in LA, New York, London and Baltimore.
