Friendly Fires Release New Single With Disclosure ‘Heaven Let Me In’ & Announce Club Tour
Premiered on BBC Radio 1 as Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest Record in the World’, Friendly Fires have just released their brand new single ‘Heaven Let Me In’, announcing their upcoming tour.
Released yesterday (15.10.18), Friendly Fires made their live comeback earlier this year, dropping their track ‘Love Like Waves‘ before playing a summer of festival appearances (including a sold out headline show at London’s Brixton Academy). After collaborating with Disclosure on their album ‘Defeated No More’, ‘Heaven Let Me In’ sees a reunion of their creative forces, incorporating Friendly Fires’ signature club culture sound and grooves. The band frontman, Ed Macfarlane, described the track as “a song about being comfortable in your own skin. When you stop trying so hard and embrace your imperfections then opportunities arise and doors open.”
Celebrating this return to music, Friendly Fires will be going on tour across the UK in November and December which Jack Savidge explained, “We wanted to make these shows more ‘party’ than ‘gig’ as an experience…we’ve done that in the past with our Coronet and Brixton late night shows back in the day. Intimate venues, DJs before and after we play, the band fitting into the narrative of the night rather than being the key spectacle. It speaks to the roots of our live show, and is a pure expression of how we see this project of ours. We’ve always aimed our live shows squarely at the dance floor, and steeped ourselves in the music and culture of clubs, and these nights will be a full celebration of that.”
