Future Islands announce European tour dates

Baltimore band who turn synthpop into an heart-stopping art form hit our shores in February.


Words by: Ruth Saxelby

There are few bands that make such an impression live as Future Islands. This Baltimore trio’s desperately-in-love synthpop songs hit hard, with frontman Samuel T. Herring giving one of the most visceral performances we’ve ever witnessed. Having released their third album ‘On The Water’ via UK label Thrill Jockey back in October, they’re heading to European streets for a 24-date tour this February and March. Attendance is highly recommended. Full tour dates below, with a reminder of album track Before The Bridge’s brilliance.
