Friendly Fires To Re-Visit Their Debut Album At London Show

For the LP's 15th anniversary...

Friendly Fires will play their debut album in full at a special London anniversary show next year.

The St Albans trio released the LP back in 2008, and it contains some of their best-loved tracks – truly, is it really a music festival if you don’t hear ‘Jump In The Pool’ at least once…?

Deciding to toast the record’s 15th anniversary, Friendly Fires have lined up a special one-off show at London Here at Outernet on February 24th. It’s a moment for both band and fans to celebrate the album, which retains a special place in so many lives.

Singer Ed MacFarlane comments…

“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.”

Friendly Fires will play London Here At Outernet on February 24th. Pre-sale tickets available on Wednesday (October 5th) via Dice and general sale on Friday (October 7th).
