Friendly Fires are celebrating fifteen years of their self-titled debut album with a couple more live shows.
The band – who are already performing a few celebratory dates this month, including at London’s Here At Outernet – will now also play Norwich Waterfront and Hull Welly this spring.
On the upcoming shows, the band said last year: “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’.
