Friendly Fires announce London gig at XOYO
THE AWARD-winning Friendly Fires from St Albans have announced a one-off London show on April 7th.
Following the news that their second album, Pala, would be released on May 16, the band have revealed they will play an intimate show at XOYO in London.
It will be the first preview of their new album for UK fans and their first London headline show since 2009. Tickets went on sale yesterday (March 23) and are available exclusively though the band’s website.
Pala is named after the island in Aldous Huxley’s 1962 novel ‘Island’. It was produced by a mixture of Friendly Fires and Paul Epworth and recorded in a variety of locations that included St Albans.
It is hoped that Pala will build on the success of their debut album which sold over 200,000 copies and picked up a Mercury Prize nomination and two Brit Awards nominations.
