Future Islands expanded their live itinerary with a new run of shows in the U.S. and Canada. The 25-date leg launches August 26th in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and concludes September 28th in Washington D.C.
The Baltimore synth-pop trio have partnered with PLUS1 for their newly scheduled gigs, pledging one dollar from each ticket sale to organizations focused on "equity, dignity and access to communities who need it."
The band's schedule also includes previously announced Europe and U.K. dates for June and July, along with an August 4th spot at Montreal's Osheaga Festival and a tour-ending September 30th show alongside 4AD labelmates the National in Forest Hills, New York.
Future Islands have toured steadily over the past year, promoting their fifth LP, 2017's The Far Field. In a recent Rolling Stone interview, frontman Samuel Herring enthused about his love of live performance.
"I don't really have a 'happy place'; a happy memory is also something you long for, something that's not there, so I don't really have them," he said. "I go to the coast when I'm home and it makes me feel like a kid again. It's beautiful to hear the sounds, to smell it. … But it all becomes the longing for something that's not there. My happiest place in this world is the stage. That's where I have purpose. It's what makes me know I deserve to be – not that I need to be – on this earth."
