Last year, Islands released not one but two new albums. This year, they'll celebrate the 10th anniversary of their great 2006 debut, Return to the Sea. It's getting reissued and remastered, with never-before-released archival photos and an essay by frontman Nick Diamonds. The artwork also "received a tasteful touch-up" (that's it pictured above). Listen to the remastered version of album opener "Swans (Life After Death)" below and read more from Nick Diamonds about the reissue here.

Islands are also touring this month, and then playing Return to the Sea in full at New York and LA shows in December. At those, they'll be joined by a string section and special guests. The LA show happens December 2 at Hollywood Forever Cemetery and NYC is December 10 at Webster Hall. Tickets for LA and NYC go on sale Friday (10/7) at 10 AM local time. All dates are listed below.
