Friendly Fires today end months of speculation with the announcement, with the announcement of their new album Inflorescent, out August 16th via Cassablanca/Polydor Records. Ahead of the LP’s release, the group have shared the single “Silhouettes.” The album arrives eight years after their previous release Pala..
The hiatus had left some to question whether we’d ever see another full length Friendly Fires record but once the three band members -Ed Macfarlane, Edd Gibson and Jack Savidge, friends since the age of eleven – reconvened in Macfarlane’s parents’ St Albans garage (the scene of much of their early recorded output) at the tail end of 2017, things were never really in doubt. Arriving with just three scrawled words (“Love. Like. Waves”) as a starting point, they soon emerged with a finished song as fresh and vital as anything they’d done before.
