Future Islands have added a third London date to their UK in November. The Baltimore trio will headline the O2 Academy Brixton show on November 22nd – their third consecutive show at the hallowed 5,000-capacity venue. The additional date offers fans another opportunity to experience what the Guardian call “an infectious atmosphere of nervy energy and communal love.” Tickets go on general sale today. For further information, head to futureislands.com.

21 November – LONDON, O2 Academy Brixton **SOLD OUT**
22 November – LONDON, O2 Academy Brixton [TICKETS]
24 November – MANCHESTER, O2 Apollo

Samuel T. Herring (vocals, lyrics), William Cashion (bass, guitars) and Gerrit Welmers (keyboards, programming) will be joined on stage by drummer Michael Lowry, and will also appear at Green Man Festival as headliners alongside PJ Harvey and Ryan Adams next month.

Future Islands’ fifth album, The Far Field, is out now. Recorded in Los Angeles with John Congleton, its twelve chest-pounding love songs and odes to the road express the central themes Future Islands have been exploring for the last decade: that there is power in emotional vulnerability, that one can find a way to laugh and cry in the same breath – and be stronger for it.
