The US tour will start at the end of August and last until October 14th at The Anthem in Washington DC before they go overseas. Their UK and European tour will start in February 2022 and last until April of 2022. Future Islands have expressed that they are working on a seventh album via NME. They have yet to say anything about when they will return from overseas.
Their new single is supposed to encompass a more mellow tune that puts people in a relaxed state of mind. The song brings up life and death and how they interact with different things. The song also describes how people feel small in a big world and big in small world, and people fell like outcasts. However, there is always someone there so they don’t give up.
Samuel Herring, Future Islands’ vocalist, shares the song lyric: “Life is the reason, I’m still holding ground, Life is imperfect bodies, and perfect sounds. Death is in season, and it’s pushing me round, and round and round, a bottle cap, a rusted crown.”
