News Friendly Fires announce 15th anniversary show for debut album

The show will take place in February.

First released in September 2008, Friendly Fires have announced that they’ll be celebrating the 15th anniversary of their self-titled debut album with a show at London Here At Outernet on Friday 24th February 2023.

“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,” the band say. “‘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.”

Akin to gobbling an entire pack of Fruit Pastilles; colourful, maybe a little sickly, but you sure as hell want to experience it again.

When perma-party-starters Friendly Fires started to question themselves, the result nearly finished the trio off for good. Now, they’re (finally!) back with a new album and a renewed sense of purpose.
