Ever cruise down A1A with the top down, the moon beaming over the ocean, with everyone in their nearby beachfront mansions quietly sleeping, all while booming “Love My Way” from your car radio? No? Then clearly you haven’t lived. Don’t worry, you’ll get your chance — The Psychedelic Furs return this fall. Someone write a letter to the heavens, this tour news is too good to be true.
While the Furs haven’t released an album of new material since 1991’s World Outside, hardly anyone’s complaining. What’s there to gripe about when the band lugs around a back catalog of dazzling, melancholic New Wave? Rhetorical question, folks. This fall, the band, which features original members Tim and Richard Butler and John Ashton, hits up a handful of theaters and clubs, all in the name of glorified ’80s nostalgia. Tagging along is UK dance sensation Happy Mondays, though wouldn’t it have been surreal if The Handsome Furs came on-board, instead?
It all starts in Chicago (thank you) and packs up in Canada. Keep those fingers crossed though, however, as the word on the street is…The Furs may be prepping some new material. One can only hope. Until then, see ya on the freeway, boys n’ girls.
Don’t forget the Wayfarers.
