Further new tracks will be unveiled in the weeks leading up to the album’s release. Made Of Rain, The Psychedelic Furs eighth album and their first in nearly thirty years, is released on May 1st 2020 . The band tour the US in April and as previously announced play their first ever show at the Royal Albert Hall in London (May 14th), with Jah Wobble & The Invaders Of The Heart as special guests, before heading to Europe and back to America for more shows. Tickets for the Royal Albert Hall are available here.
From its exhilarating opening bars, Made Of Rain is classic Psychedelic Furs in both its sound and execution. It’s a joy to hear again, fresher than ever. Their peerless permutations of art, aggression and ambience drive the dynamics, and it’s always been this originality which has set them apart, a cut above. The album was produced by Richard Fortus, whilst mixing duties were handled by Tim Palmer (David Bowie, U2, Robert Plant). Led by vocal and lyrical genius Richard Butler with his brother Tim on bass, The Psychedelic Furs released seven critically acclaimed studio albums – The Psychedelic Furs (1980), Talk Talk Talk (1981), Forever Now (1982), Mirror Moves (1984), Midnight To Midnight (1987), Book Of Days (1989) and World Outside (1991). They released many classic singles throughout the ’80’s and into the 90’s, including: “Sister Europe,” “Love My Way,” “The Ghost In You,” ” Pretty In Pink,” “Heaven,” “Heartbreak Beat,” “All That Money Wants” and “Until She Comes.”
In recent years the band have toured continually completing a tour of North America in 2019 and played acclaimed shows at The Hollywood Bowl, All Points East, Hyde Park and Benicàssim. A celebrated handful of UK shows including headlining the prestigious Meltdown at the Royal Festival Hall at Robert Smith of The Cure’s request. This past October, the band played a sold-out tour of the UK and Europe which culminated in a triumphant show at the Roundhouse in London.
The last few years has seen the band’s legend growing, highlighted by the fact they have scored over 150 million streams of their songs worldwide. Their influence since arriving on the post-punk scorched-earth landscape four decades ago has reverberated and resonated from everyone from The Killers to REM to Foo Fighters to Bob Dylan has sung their praises.
The Psychedelic Furs are sounding stronger than ever and as anyone who’s seen the band lately knows, Butler remains one of the most watchable front men in the game.
