Iveagh Gardens, Dublin - 6 July 2017

Future Islands have announced new dates for Cork and Limerick ahead of their biggest Irish show to date at the Iveagh Gardens, Dublin on Thursday 6 July 2017.  New Album  The Far Field Out Friday 7 April via 4AD

The Far Field refines and builds on the breakthroughs of their 2014 album Singles, bursting with undeniable hooks and disarmingly honest lyrics written by Samuel T. Herring (vocals, lyrics), William Cashion (bass, guitars) and Gerrit Welmers (keyboards, programming). After the success of Singles and the hundreds of Future Islands shows played in that period, the trio came off the road and jumped straight into other projects, releasing albums as Peals (Cashion’s project with Bruce Willen from Double Dagger), Moss Of Aura (Whelmers), Hemlock Ernst(Herring), and the Snails   Across The Far Field’s twelve chest-pounding love songs and odes to the road, Future Islands brilliantly expresses 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’.     

The Far Field is released worldwide on April 7th. It will be available digitally, on 180gm white and standard black LP, CD, cassette formats and as a unique, first-of-its-kind miniature LP.
