Friendly Fires @ Webster Hall
Friendly Fires

“It makes us giddy with delight to announce that New York’s finest, Holy Ghost, are going to join the line-up [of our December 11th show at London’s Coronet Theatre]. As if their addition weren’t early christmas present enough, we’re also going to be revealing an exclusive and highly limited 12″ at the show. We’ve recorded an entirely new reworking of ‘on board’, showcasing the lung capacity of our brass section. On the other side of ‘On Board'(pig bag version) is a fun loving remix by the boisterous Joakim. So as not to rub in the face of the ticketless too much, the 12″ is also going to be available in a very limited number of record shops as well. Perfect stocking filler for any nan on the scene. [Friendly Fires]”

Friendly Fires completed their tour with The xx Saturday night at Webster Hall in NYC (12/5). Pictures from that show are in this post.

The xx start up again in March with US dates running almost to the end of April (aka look for them to appear at both SXSW and Coachella this year). The xx’s next NYC show is April 22nd at Terminal 5 with Hot Chip (tickets still on sale). Hot Chip are DJing the above-mentioned UK Friendly Fires show – the show where people will get a first shot at picking up the hot new Joakim remix on vinyl. You can listen to the song now though – thanks to someone ripping it from Annie Mac‘s BBC show and posting the clip to YouTube.

That video, all dates, and more pictures from Webster Hall, below…
