Future Islands expanded their live itinerary with a new run of shows in the U.S. and Canada. The 25-date leg launches August 26th in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and concludes September 28th in Washington D.C.
The Baltimore synth-pop trio have partnered with PLUS1 for their newly scheduled gigs, pledging one dollar from each ticket sale to organizations focused on "equity, dignity and access to communities who need it."
The band's schedule also includes previously announced Europe and U.K. dates for June and July, along with an August 4th spot at Montreal's Osheaga Festival and a tour-ending September 30th show alongside 4AD labelmates the National in Forest Hills, New York.
Future Islands have toured steadily over the past year, promoting their fifth LP, 2017's The Far Field.
Across "The Far Field"’s twelve chest-pounding love songs and odes to the road, Future Islands brilliantly express the band’s central themes they’ve been exploring for the last decade: that there is power in emotional vulnerability, that one can find a way to laugh and cry in the same breath – and be stronger for it.
The band began writing new material in January 2016 on the coast of North Carolina, and continued throughout the year in Baltimore before road-testing these songs at a series of secret shows under fake names. Later that year, they travelled to Los Angeles to record with Grammy Award-winning producer John Congleton at the legendary Sunset Sound, where everyone from The Beach Boys to Prince have laid down masterpieces. With string and horn arrangements by Patrick McMinn, "The Far Field" is the first Future Islands record to feature live drums by Michael Lowry, who joined the band prior to their sensational performance of ‘Seasons (Waiting On You)’ on David Letterman’s late night TV show. Blondie’s Debbie Harry also makes a guest appearance, in a duet with Herring on penultimate track ‘Shadows’.
