Friendly Fires set to celebrate 15th Anniversary of debut with London show

The show is set to take place this coming February.

Friendly Fires are set to play a show in London next February, celebrating the 15th anniversary of their debut self-titled album. Released in September 2008 on XL Recordings, Friendly Fires was shortlisted for 2009’s Mercury Prize and was followed by remixes from Paul Epworth, Ray Mang, Aeroplane, and others.

The band will take the stage on February 23 at London Here at Outernet, playing a mixture of tracks their self-titled project alongside a few others during the set.

Speaking about the upcoming show, the band said:

“Time is a flat circle, much like a CD or a record, and one such flat circle that completely reconfigured our lives will be turning 15 next year.”

“‘Friendly Fires’ only peaked at a modest #38 in the album chart, but momentum grew via the word-of-mouth of our small crew of proactive fans, and eventually we had a hit on our hands. So next year, we’re going to be getting out there and doing a special show to celebrate this, both for us and for the fans who made it a success.”
