Friendly Fires

Friendly Fires paid a visit to NYC to play a headlining show to an energetic crowd at Bowery Ballroom Monday night (2/7). They played a mix of old and new songs - about seven new songs, or eight if you count "Kiss of Life". Their new album is out this spring. The full Bowery setlist is below.

On Wednesday they hit LA, and then that's it for the UK band this time around. They return for SXSW in March, but don't do a proper tour until May which is when they're back in NYC to headline Webster Hall.

No opener has been announced for the upcoming tour, NYC show included, but The Hundred in the Hands were the support last night at Bowery. More pictures from the show and tour dates below...

I wasn't at this show however have seen Hundred in the Hands live and was impressed. Good energy btwn the two; Eleanonre was certainly entertaining to watch. Awesome photo set for this show!

hundred in hands was a nice surprise at this show - think moody electropop

agreed with 1:05- saw them supporting the Temper Trap in rochester (i go to school here) and they were pretty solid. Delphic also opened, and they were pretty phenomenal.

falty DL was pretty damn good and should be getting a mention.

Friendly Fires sounded great, definitely wish they had played a bit longer given the amount of newer material though

God damn it can you people comment about how the new Friendly Fires songs sounded and not about the fucken openers. Bunch of amateurs on here.

New songs don't sound like the old stuff. Not bad but less oomph. Mood really died when they played the new stuff.

From coal miner songs in The Boggs to French chanteuse pop in HITH: that guy can sell it all!

Hundred In The Hands were better when they opened for Handsome Furs 2 years ago.
