Future Islands released their new album, On The Water, through Thrill Jockey earlier this year, carrying on the good work in their previous albums. Read Neil Ashman's review of it here. They aren't slowing down just yet, and although Future Islands UK shows have been relatively scarce in recent years, that is about to change.
The trio have an absolute load of shows in mainland Europe before the UK leg of their tour kicks off, including in France, Spain, Germany, Italy and Luxembourg. But you probably won't be interested in those (if you are, go here) so here are the British and Irish shows.
6 - London, Tufnell Park Dome
7 - Glasgow, Captain's Rest
8 - Manchester, TBA
9 - Brighton, The Hunt
10 - Dublin, Whelan's
There's also a stream of a remix of a "bonus" track which didn't appear on the band's latest album if you bought if physically. i.e it was a bonus track for iTunes purchases. Oh, it's 'Crish' and the remix (or remixxx) is by Javelin. Stream it below in the swanky new HTML5 SoundCloud player.
There's also a new-ish video for 'Give Us The Wind', which can be seen below:
