Friendly Fires are celebrating fifteen years of their self-titled debut album with a couple of shows next year.
The first was announced earlier this week, with the band performing at London’s Here At Outernet on Friday 24th February. Now they’ll also play the venue on Thursday 23rd February.
On the upcoming shows, the band say: “Time is a flat circle, much like a CD or a record, and one such flat circle that completely reconfigured our lives will be turning 15 next year.
“‘Friendly Fires’ only peaked at a modest #38 in the album chart, but momentum grew via the word-of-mouth of our small crew of proactive fans, and eventually we had a hit on our hands. So next year, we’re going to be getting out there and doing a special show to celebrate this, both for us and for the fans who made it a success.
“We’ll be blasting through the record in full along with a generous helping of other tunes, doubtless feeling a bit weepy and emotional throughout. It’ll be great to see the old gang, plus the newer heads who came on board (rimshot) later.”
The ‘Friendly Fires’ LP was originally released in September 2008, and has since been followed by 2011’s ‘Pala’ and 2019’s ‘Inflorescent’.
Tickets go on sale at 10am this Friday 7th October.
