The Fiery Furnaces have announced a run of shows slated for this November in Brooklyn, Chicago and Los Angeles featuring support from special guest Fred Armisen.
Third Man Records has also released “The Fortune Teller’s Revenge,” the previously physical-only B-side to the band’s first new recording in ten years, “Down at the So and So on Somewhere.” A 7″ with both tracks is currently available.
The band comments:
“We’re very excited to be playing again, to get a chance to do new things with old stuff, or old things with new people. And we’re very happy to have Fred opening the shows.”
Eleanor and Matthew Friedberger formed The Fiery Furnaces in New York City in 2000. Their debut album Gallowsbird’s Bark (Rough Trade Records) was released in 2003. In the following seven years, they released eight more albums and toured extensively throughout North America, Europe, Australia and Japan. The band’s last performance was nearly a decade ago at the Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona. In the meantime Eleanor and Matthew Friedberger have released eight solo albums, collectively.
