Brooklyn’s Friends, already listed in the BBC ‘Sound of 2012′ are continuing to move up in the world. They’ve announced what will be their largest headlining NYC show yet: Bowery Ballroom on July 7. Tickets go on sale Friday (4/13) at noon. The show happens at the end of a North American tour. All dates are listed below.

The band also just revealed plans to release their debut LP, Manifest! on June 5 via Fat Possum in the US and a day earlier via Lucky Number worldwide. The album was produced by the band and mixed by Paul Epworth (Adele, Florence and the Machine, Azealia Banks). They just dropped a new dance-punky cut from the album, “Mind Control,” which you can stream below.
