New Friendly Fires Video

Previous Mercury Prize nominees Friendly Fires are back with a new song and accompanying video. The song – ‘Live Those Days Tonight’ – will be the opening track on impending album Pala, which is set to be released on May 16th courtesy of XL Recordings. The band’s self-titled debut, released back in 2009, won the band instant plaudits on both sides of the Atlantic (NME: 8/10, Pitchfork: 7.9) and peaked at number 21 in the UK’s album chart. The new release is certainly weighed down with high levels of expectancy. Check out the video, a collage of found footage rave clips (complete with gurns) that inspired the writing of ‘Live Those Days Tonight’, underneath:
