When it was announced Future Islands would be supporting Mumford and Sons in Sydney and Melbourne on their upcoming tour, the rest of the country was left reeling. “What about us Future Islands? Why must you starve us of your smooth indie rock and maniacal dance moves?” We yelled from the rooftops of Brisbane to the far corners of WA. After a stellar performance at Laneway Festival this year, those who witnessed the show were left wanting more, and those who missed it were left with a serious case of regret. Check out what all the hype is about with the below video from The Letterman Show earlier this year:
Now, for some lucky punters, the band have added two additional headlining dates to their tour in Brisbane and Adelaide. The trio hailing from Baltimore shot to fame in 2014 with killer single Seasons (Waiting on You), which many hailed as the best song of the year, and followed up with the densely rich synth pop album Singles. But, this is not the band’s first time at the rodeo. It is their fourth studio album, and they will bring a strong back catalogue to draw from when they return to our shores for the second time this year.
