Islands 'Mess With Texas' @ Waterloo Park, Austin, TX-Mar 15, 2008
Islands @ Waterlook Park

Islands have signed to Anti-Records, home to such luminaries as Tom Waits, Nick Cave and Neko Case. May 20th will see the release of the band's Arm's Way album.

"After more than a year in the frozen pipes, we are beside ourselves (three times) to be presenting what we believe to be our finest work yet, on the finest label we could think of. It's been a long time coming, and it'll be a long time before it's gone." -Nick Thorburn, Islands

"Islands' singular vision makes them enormously important in today's music scene and an amazing addition to the Anti roster. We are thrilled that they will be part of what we do." -Andy Kaulkin, Anti Records president

Tickets are on sale for a May 24th Islands show at historic Webster Hall in NYC. More tour dates, and photos & videos from Islands' performance at Saturday's Mess With Texas extravaganza in Texas, below.....
