This year, Future Islands will have played an astonishing 117 shows in support of their latest album, The Far Field. The Baltimore-based trio performed in front of the biggest audiences of their 11-year career, topping festival bills around the globe and headlining three consecutive nights at London’s Brixton Academy last month. It’s fitting then, that the new video for ‘Beauty Of The Road’ (created by Jay Buim) depicts the hard-touring band in their natural habitat. Buim spent several days on the road with Samuel T. Herring, William Cashion, Gerrit Welmers and drummer Michael Lowry earlier this year, and his visuals capture the infectious energy of their live shows.
Future Islands will be back on the road next year, returning to Europe in June. In the UK, they headline four dates in Scotland and perform with The National and War On Drugs at the inaugural All Points East festival, For more information, visit futureislands.com.
