FUTURE ISLANDS

 

NEW ALBUM AS LONG AS YOU ARE OUT TODAY

 

WATCH LATE SHOW WITH STEPHEN COLBERT PERFORMANCE

 

Today, Future Islands have released their sixth album As Long As You Are via 4AD. The album has already earned praise as “more deeply felt New Romantic intensity than ever” by Rolling Stone and “melding melodic punch with brooding gloom, Future Islands' role as new wave torch bearers is assured” by The Line of Best Fit. Earlier this week, the band launched As Long As You Are listening, together, an interactive real-time cooperative listening event. To celebrate the album, the band performed “For Sure” on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Wednesday October 7 and they will perform the single on Ellen on October 15.

 

Tonight, Future Islands will perform their only show of 2020. The Baltimore group have been road warriors for over a decade, touring extensively every year without fail, but 2020 is the first year the band will not hit the road since 2008. Instead, for their 1,235th live show, the group will move online for a one-off global livestream event tonight, October 9. “A Stream of You and Me” will be filmed in Maryland and feature a bespoke one-off light show created by light artist Pierre Claude (The Strokes, Phoenix, Gesaffelstein). The broadcast will be directed by Michael Garber (Phoenix, Bon Iver, Kamasi Washington).

PRAISE FOR AS LONG AS YOU ARE:

 

“This album feels like the next step in their story, with more deeply felt New Romantic intensity than ever.” – Rolling Stone

"Melding melodic punch with brooding gloom, Future Islands' role as new wave torch bearers is assured on a sixth album gilded with emotional and sonic depth, symptomatic of their rising status as seasoned songsmiths." The Line Of Best Fit (9/10)

“Even without a stage to dance and glide across, [Sam] still performs with the propulsion and poignancy for which the band is known.” – Pitchfork on “Thrill”

"A marvellously-produced album that jumps out of the speakers, brimming with confidence and dripping with arena-sized existential anthems." – Loud And Quiet (8/10)

“The band’s sixth album is uplifting and a document of healing…It's Romanticism delivered” – SPIN

"They come alive on stage, in a way that no other band really does." – Uproxx

“The idiosyncratic synth-pop greats” – Stereogum

"One of the most anticipated albums of the season.” – Consequence of Sound

“Sumptuous.” – Uncut (8/10)
