Future Islands play this weekend’s Hopscotch Festival in Raleigh, NC on 9/10, and after a few weeks away from the road, will kick off a US tour in Grand Rapids, Michigan that will last them into the first week of December. NYC has a date to call their own that falls toward the end of said tour, at Bowery Ballroom on December 1st. They’re headlining (!) with Ed Schrader’s Music Beat opening. Tickets are on sale. All dates are listed below.

The tour kick off happens exactly two weeks after On the Water, the band’s latest full-length from Thrill Jockey, hits store shelves (October 11) Check out the video for “Balance” below.

Future Islands joined several other notables over Labor Day weekend in Los Angeles at FYFest. A recap of the festival that took place on 9/3 is on the way, but for now bask in the mayhem that took place during Future Islands’ set (the fest’s break out performance according to Lady Gunn). More pictures, the video and all dates below…
