SK says: 'Sam Herring picks over a disintegrating long-distance relationship with candour but he exercises vocal restraint, knowing exactly when to unleash his trademark growl over Gerrit Welmers' synth work, which at times owes as much to William Onyeabor as it does to OMD. William Cashion's bass alternates between Hooky-esque strums, locked in step with Mike Lowry's motorik rhythms, and taking the melodic lead on the album's slower numbers. It all adds up to their best since breakthrough album Singles and that Letterman performance.'
Today, less than two months following the final tour date of their As Long As You Are tour, Future Islands announce the details of their new album People Who Aren’t There Anymore which will be released January 26, 2024. The seventh album from the band - Samuel T. Herring (vocals, lyrics), William Cashion (bass, guitars), Gerrit Welmers (keyboards, programming), and Michael Lowry (drums) - follows 2020’s As Long As You Are. People Who Aren’t There Anymore heralds a new chapter for Future Islands who, despite having formed nearly two decades ago, continue to challenge themselves and each other.
Where they’ve pursued ever-higher energy anthems in the past, they’ve turned inward this time, and unlocked a new level of ferocity, delivering some of their most inspiring and most heartbreaking tracks by doing the opposite: taking their time, making each breath, each syllable, each cymbal crash count. The result is a powerful, defining statement from a group of musicians that have made the best album of their career.
People Who Aren’t There Anymore was co-produced by Future Islands and Steve Wright, and mixed by Steve Wright and Chris Coady (who returns to working with the band for the first time since 2014’s Singles).
