Friendly Fires (Ed Macfarlane, Jack Savidge and Edd Gibson) from Hertfordshire, burst onto the scene in 2007 along with other dance/alternative bands such as Delphic, Digitalism, Filthy Dukes and Foals with their synth based indie tracks.
Their tops single “Paris” became a club smash and received high praise from the likes of The Guardian, the NME and Zane Lowe’s highly influential BBC Radio One show. It wasn’t long until they became one of the hottest bands out of the late 2000s.
Their song "On Board" went on to be used in everything from video games, to sport programmes to an American TV series, and their debut eponymous album went straight to Gold status and secured them a space on the 2009 NME Awards Tour as well being nominated for the top floor filler award.
Friendly Fires second album Pala (May 2011) proved to be another smash hit reaching #6 in the UK Album Chart and charted across the world and contained the hit singles: "Live Those Days Tonight" and "Hawaiian Air". They followed the second album with a massive UK tour which saw them end at the O2 Brixton Academy on 25th November 2012.
