It’s 15 years since the release of Friendly Fires’ debut album.
After starting their anniversary tour dates in Leeds and London last week, Friendly Fires will play more shows at the Norwich Waterfront and Hull Welly in May as the band remember the sleeper success of their first record.
“‘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,” they’ve said.
“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.”
