Description

    As Long As You Are looks to the past as well as the future, confronting old ghosts and embracing a new hope.  It is an album about trust, full of honesty, redemption and “letting go”, allowing old wounds to heal and bringing painful chapters to a close.

    As Long As You Are also signals a new era for Future Islands.  Drummer Mike Lowry officially joins as a fully-fledged member and songwriter bolstering the founding trio of William Cashion, Samuel T Herring and Gerrit Whelmers.  Together, the four-piece took on official production duties for the first time, co-producing As Long As You Are with engineer Steve Wright at his Wrightway Studios in Baltimore.  Musically, their brand of new wave synth-pop full of bright melodies and heavenly choruses is as euphoric and uninhibitedly joyful as anything the band has done in their 14-year career.

    "As an artist, you always have fears that you're just gonna get old and then people won't care," says frontman Samuel T. Herring. "But this is what we're supposed to sound like and, to us, it's the best we've ever sounded. As Long As You Are is another step in defining who Future Islands is, and that's really important."
