 Baltimore group Future Islands release ‘As Long As You Are’, their sixth studio record, via 4AD.  ‘As Long As You Are’ looks to the past as well as the future, confronting old ghosts and embracing a new hope. It is an album about trust, full of honesty, redemption and “letting go,” allowing old wounds to heal and bringing painful chapters to a close.  ‘As Long As You Are’ also signals a new era for Future Islands. Drummer Mike Lowry officially joins as a fully-fledged member and songwriter bolstering the founding trio of William Cashion, Samuel T. Herring and Gerrit Welmers. Together, the four-piece took on official production duties for the first time, co-producing ‘As Long As You Are’ with engineer Steve Wright at his Wrightway Studios in Baltimore.  Their brand of new wave synth-pop, full of bright melodies and heavenly choruses, is as euphoric and uninhibitedly joyful as anything the band have done in their 14-year career.  LP available to independent retailers on petrol blue vinyl.
