Baltimore's Future Islands return with 'As Long As You Are' - their sixth studio record - via 4AD.

+ Limited Indie shop version LP is pressed on petrol blue coloured vinyl.

'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 has done in their 14-year career.
