Fang Island

Fang Island will be one of the "tons more" promised at Cake Shop's May 29th show with Dan Deacon, which is part of the venue's fifth-anniversary month (a month that includes the NYC debut of New Moods this evening, May 17th).

Fang Island are currently on tour through the end of May, and this July they'll head out with the Flaming Lips. Those shows include Lips' July 4th Atlantic City show and their upstate NY shows (one of which has Black Keys and Morning Benders). All dates are below.

The band's self-titled record that came out earlier this year. Two tracks from it are above, and below are two videos directed by Carlos Charlie Perez (no relation to Danny Perez, Animal Collective collaborator, besides the sonic similarities). All tour dates and videos are below...

I respect the time and work they've put into their band - but I saw them recently and it felt like the Back Street Boys meet Against Me.
Does everyone really have to sing in unison? Uccck. :(

@11:23 What a ridiculous complaint. Get back to me when Backstreet Boys or Against Me can shred like Fang Island can.

Seriously, Fang Island is killing it with that debut album and you are comparing them to the Backstreet Boys?

2:10 PM- Totally agree- though the self-titled isn't exactly their debut album, the first couple are totally worth checking out- especially Day Of The Great Leap

Oh OK cool, thanks for pointing me to their prior EPs. I'll definitely check them out.
