British dance-rock trio Friendly Fires have released a new album, Inflorescent, today via Casablanca/Polydor. Now that the album is out, you can stream the whole thing below. Also below are the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Inflorescent includes two singles the band shared last year: “Heaven Let Me In” (which was one of our Songs of the Week) and “Love Like Waves” (which was also one of our Songs of the Week). Then when the album was announced they shared another new song from it, “Silhouettes” (which once again was one of our Songs of the Week). Then they shared another song from it, “Run the Wild Flowers” (which was also one of our Songs of the Week).

The band features Ed Macfarlane, Edd Gibson, and Jack Savidge. For Inflorescent the band worked with producers Mark Ralph, James Ford and Disclosure (brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence).

It’s been eight long years since Pala, the 2011-released sophomore album by London dance-rock trio, but back in April 2018 they returned with a brand new single, “Love Like Waves” (which was one of our Songs of the Week), which was followed by a video for the song in May 2018. Then in October 2018 they shared “Heaven Let Me In” (it was also one of our Songs of the Week). In November they shared a video for “Heaven Let Me In,” which starred British actor Jeremy Irvine.

Friendly Fires made a splash with their 2008-released self-titled debut album, which was fueled by the singles “Paris” and “Jump in the Pool” and was nominated for the Mercury Prize.

Revisit our early 2008 interview with Friendly Fires, back when they were largely unknown.

In the first place, it was on the grounds that I was simply extremely dismal and shattered and I made these extremely significant disclosures in my treatment that were so weighty. It was difficult for me to get up and stuff.
