Friends opening for Neon Indian (Metro & other dates)
Friends @ BV CMJ 2011 (more by Chris La Putt)
Brooklyn’s Friends, who were recently named in the BBC’s Sound of 2012, have been chosen as support for part of Neon Indian‘s spring North American tour. They’ll join up with Alan Palomo and co. on April 3rd at Philly’s Union Transfer. As mentioned, Neon Indian are playing Metro on April 6th and Friends are now included on that bill as well.
The band have released two 7″s via Lucky Number Music, Friend Crush (March 2011) and I’m His Girl (October 2011) both of which you can stream below. Look out for a full-length LP in the near future.
Before joining up with Neon Indian, Friends hop the pond for a short European tour and then team with Metronomy for a handful of US shows. Metronomy reach Lincoln Hall on April 4th, though without Friends (support is TBA).
