Friendly Fires Announce New Album, Share New Song “Silhouettes”
Inflorescent Due Out August 16 via Casablanca/Polydor
Friendly Fires have announced a new album, Inflorescent, and shared a new song from it, “Silhouettes.” Inflorescent will be released on August 16 via Casablanca/Polydor. It includes two singles the band shared last year: “Heaven Let Me In” and “Love Like Waves.” Check out “Silhouettes” below, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art, as well as the band’s upcoming tour dates.
The band features Ed Macfarlane, Edd Gibson, and Jack Savidge. For Inflorescent the band worked with producers Mark Ralph, James Ford and Disclosure (brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence).
It’s been eight long years since Pala, the 2011-released sophomore album by London dance-rock trio, but back in April 2018 they returned with a brand new single, “Love Like Waves” (which was one of our Songs of the Week), which was followed by a video for the song in May 2018. Then in October 2018 they shared “Heaven Let Me In” (it was also one of our Songs of the Week). In November they shared a video for “Heaven Let Me In,” which starred British actor Jeremy Irvine.
Friendly Fires made a splash with their 2008-released self-titled debut album, which was fueled by the singles “Paris” and “Jump in the Pool” and was nominated for the Mercury Prize.
