Friendly Fires announce huge summer tour

Back in 2008, Friendly Fires made a huge name for themselves with their Mercury Music Prize-nominated debut album Friendly Fires. Unfortunately, their sophomore album, tentatively titled Pala, has been continuously delayed, and the release date remains a mystery.
Despite this, the band has just announced a huge tour that spans five continents and five months. Starting with two US shows in February, the band is moving on to Australia and Singapore before heading back to the North America, and a short stint in Europe, for two solid months of shows. Here's hoping that somewhere in the middle of all this touring the UK trio will drop a release date for Pala. You can check out the tour dates after the jump!
