Future Islands: In the Fall / In Evening Air Release Shows
plus new videos from the living room session!
Above is a freshly cut video from our living room session with Future Islands recorded late last year, with Splice Today editor Zach Kaufmann behind the lens. The song is called "As I Fall", and will be the closing track on In Evening Air, their Thrill Jockey full length which drops on May 5th.
This LP will easily be one of the best works to come out of Baltimore this year, 36 minutes of some of the most confident and realized output to birth from the trio. William, Sam, and Gerrit are poised to celebrate their upcoming releases via the way they know best, setting out on a full U.S. tour.
April 5th at the Zodiac, Future Islands play with Jason Urick, Child Bite, and Zoos of Berlin. In addition to this being the release show for their EP dubbed In the Fall, which precedes the LP and is limited to 500 copies, this will also be the release show for Jason Urick's Fussing & Fighting. Half of the proceeds go to benefit Whartscape.
Get all the tour details and another new living room session video below.
You might recognize "Litte Dreamer" as the beautiful closing track of Wave Like Home, or from a remix done by Jones with the added vocals of Victoria Legrand from Beach House for their Post Office Wave Chapel remix 12 inch out on Free Danger.
After a short stint of shows in early April, Future Islands embark on a massive North American tour with Jana Hunter's new band, Lower Dens. The tour also features dates with some other favorites including Height with Friends, Double Dagger, and Lonnie Walker. The In Evening Air album release show will be a big one at Floristree on April 30, with Double Dagger and Dustin Wong.
