Following their sold out London shows later this month, Friendly Fires have today announced two new dates to their 15th year anniversary celebrations. These will take place at Norwich Waterfront on Saturday 13th May and Hull Welly on Friday 19th May 2023.
On the upcoming shows the band say –
“Time is a flat circle, much like a CD or a record, and one such flat circle that completely reconfigured our lives has turned 15 this 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’ was the debut album from the St Albans-three piece, Ed McFarlane, Edd Gibson and Jack Savidge. Featuring hit singles ‘Jump In the Pool’ and ‘Paris’, it was an era-defining record. It launched the band to huge critical and commercial success. It was nominated for the Mercury Prize and a Brit Award, and touring the band were an essential act, playing the biggest festivals in the world. The record transcended the punk-funk scene of the time and this show will be a celebration of this modern classic.
