Today Friendly Fires – Ed Macfarlane, Edd Gibson and Jack Savage – have unveiled “Run The Wild Flowers,” the latest track from their long awaited new album Inflorescent(August 16, Casablanca Records/Polydor) Featured earlier today on Apple Music’s Beats 1 as Zane Lowe’s “World First,” the track is available now for streaming and download.
The band spent the last year reminding everyone exactly why they’re one of the best loved bands coming from the UK. Fader called out “…the long-awaited follow-up to 2011’s Pala” upon the release of via a series of jubilant, celebratory comeback shows and a duo of singles (“Love Like Waves” and “Heaven Let Me In” plus an impeccably chosen cover of Charles B & Adonis’ ‘Lack Of Love’) that were a near perfect distillation of club-fuelled euphoria and instinctively modern pop sensibilities, Friendly Fires today add to that with “Run The Wild Flowers” a propulsive love song that finds singer Ed Macfarlane lost in early morning, club closing time introspection.
To mark the release of the album, Friendly Fires recently announced a run of US tour dates in September including Brooklyn on September 24 and Los Angeles onSeptember 27. Today they have announced a new string of shows in Europe and all dates are listed below.
