Baltimore trio Future Islands are thrilled to announce their Australian tour dates. Following the release of their fifth studio album The Far Field (4AD / Remote Control), and having just played at Splendour In The Grass, the band will return for a run of headline shows and festival appearances this December 2017. The band will play in Sydney at the Metro Theatre, Brisbane at the Triffid, Melbourne at Croxton Hotel as well as Fairgrounds and Meredith festivals.
Samuel, William and Gerrit 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.
A well seasoned band, both in the studio and on the stage, Future Islands have distilled the essence of their success and longevity to the themes that permeate their records: 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. It’s a statement that identifies their unique presence on stage, and soon Australian audiences will once again bear witness to Future Islands, in their dynamic glory.
