The Fiery Furnaces sign to Popfrenzy

Quickly... We've secured the upcoming Fiery Furnaces album. It's their eighth full-length and first studio album since 2007. Sounds awesome and it'll hit stores August 8.

They're also hopefully touring over our summer. Should be exciting times ahead for a band that's already built up a nice solid fanbase in Australia and New Zealand.

I'm Going Away is The Fiery Furnaces' eighth album (and first on Popfrenzy). All rock music is a sort of dramatic music. And since the times are tough, it makes sense to have that "drama" be something more like a version of Taxi than something like a version of Titanic. We like Taxi better than Titanic, anyway. So we hope that some of the songs on this record can be used as theme songs to folks' own personal versions of Taxi. Because - ideally - the dramatic setting of the music isn't provided by the story or image of the given act or band. It's provided by the lives of the people who use - listen to - the music. That is pop music's promise and problem. So be careful and don't get canceled.
