Friendly Fires – comprised of Ed Macfarlane, Edd Gibson and Jack Savidge – returned to the recorded music and live arenas in 2018 following a hiatus, to remind us all exactly why we fell in love with them in the first place. First came the anthemic comeback single ‘Love Like Waves’ which was met with widespread acclaim. Then launching into a summer of high profile festival appearances (not to mention a sold out headline show at London’s legendary, 5000 capacity Brixton Academy), Friendly Fires would go on to headline some of the UK’s best loved in addition to show-stealing performances if front of hundreds of thousands of fans around the world. They capped the year off with their crossover anthem ‘Heaven Let Me In’, which was co-produced with Disclosure and featured acclaimed British actor Jeremy Irvine in the video. Splendour in the Grass marks the band’s first Australian shows in over 6 years.
