Friendly Fires have announced a new anniversary tour celebrating their debut album

The celebrations are in support of their self-titled debut, released in 2008.

Friendly Fires are celebrating fifteen years of their self-titled debut album with a new UK tour.

They also have a couple of limited-edition vinyl reissues on the way, with ‘Friendly Fires’ and ‘Paris’ coming on 8th September via XL. The ‘Friendly Fires’ LP was originally released in September 2008, and has since been followed by 2011’s ‘Pala’ and 2019’s ‘Inflorescent’.

On the new dates and reissues, the band say: “We‘ve had such a ridiculously fun time playing these first album shows that we‘re going to spread the love to some more corners of the UK. Join us to raise a glass and have a dance – it’s gonna be special.

“We’re also going to mark the occasion with 15th anniversary re-issues of the vinyl edition of the ‘Friendly Fires’ LP, and the ‘Paris’ 12” complete with its iconic Aeroplane remix. Both of these have been out of print for an age, so we thought it’d be good for a few more people to be able to own them. They’re being printed on glorious gold and silver vinyl, and sounding extra-specially luxurious because of it.”

Catch them live at the following:

24 St Albans Arena

23 Nottingham Rock City
24 Manchester O2 Victoria Warehouse
25 Birmingham O2 Institute
28 Leeds Beckett Students Union
30 London Troxy
