Islands announced a North American tour in support of their upcoming album titled A Sleep & A Forgetting, one of the 25 albums we’re most looking forward to this year.
The tour starts on the same day the album is released, on Feb. 14, in Los Angeles at the Bootleg Theatre. The tour wraps up in San Francisco on March 13 for now, but there is a to-be-announced date scheduled in San Diego the following day.
In other notable Islands news, the band is embracing their Valentine’s Day release by giving out actual Valentines. When you preorder the band’s album here, they’re offering “signed and numbered (and possibly personalized) Valentine’s Day card(s)” from Islands frontman Nick Thorburn.
