Future Islands sign to 4AD, new album in March

Future Islands

After proving their salt with In Evening Air and On The Water on Thrill Jockey, Future Islands have made the progressive leap to 4AD. The announcement of a new label is piggybacked with the exciting news that we're a mere two months away from ending the three year drought since the last Future Islands album.

On March 24 the Baltimore-based three piece of Samuel T. Herring, William Cashion, and Gerrit Welmers will release Singles. According to a 4AD press release, producer and creative partner Chris Coady (Beach House, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Grizzly Bear), is placing Herring's poetry up front and in high fidelity. We never thought Future Islands ever missed those marks, but we're willing to reserve further opinion until we hear the record.

Speaking of which, despite the album's title, the band has yet to debut a new single, but it did drop two months of tour dates on our eager asses. Tour dates after the album art.
