Islands will release a new album this spring.
Arm’s Way is pencilled in for issue through Rough Trade Records on the 19th of May, as CD and download.
The album was made in Montreal and a converted barn in rural Washington State; Elvis Presley used the very same barn to cut his first record. Its songs are inspired by desperate wood-marooned tyre blow-outs, thunderstorms and the true story of a gang of local kids from main man Nick Thorburn’s home town that brutally murdered a local fisherman.
Titles include ‘The Arm’, ‘Pieces of You’, ‘In the Rushes’ and ‘Vergito (If it’s a Crime)’.

19 Belfast Speakeasy
