frien pala cover Check Out: Friendly Fires   "Live Those Days Tonight"

Along with hitting the shores of North America for a summer tour, the English dance-punk trio Friendly Fires have announced that their sophomore LP, Pala, will arrive in stores May 24th via XL Recordings (which just so happens to be when said tour kicks off in Philadelphia, PA). What’s more, the lads recently unveiled the album’s first song, “Live Those Days Tonight”. Sounding like a disco knock-off of Animal Collective, the band are clearly striking for the large, flamboyant sound that they used to get people onto the dance floor with their 2008 self-titled debut. You can listen to it below…

01. Live Those Days Tonight
