Future Generations Release Title Track of New LP LANDSCAPE Out 9/14 +  North American Tour Dates Announced

Brooklyn's Future Generations will release their new album Landscape via Frenchkiss Records on September 14 and today, they share the title track to the new record with fans. Stream/share "Landscape" HERE.

The band recently announced a massive tour of NORTH AMERICA with dates that kick off September 18 at Philadelphia's Johnny Brenda's. The tour takes them to, among other markets, Los Angeles, CA, San Francisco, CA, Chicago, IL and Montreal, QC. The dates conclude with a hometown show at Baby's All Right in Brooklyn, NY on October26. The full tour is listed below and including already-announced summer dates.

"Landscape" is the follow up to previously released single "All The Same," which was just included on Spotify's New Music Friday playlist. Blackbook Magazine have said "with its quirky, jittery rhythms and thoughtfully existential lyrics...the obvious touchstone would be Talking Heads. But the lush synths, sumptuous harmonies and infectious hooks recall everyone from OMD to Ladytron." Saying Future Generations, "is ready to set the world on fire with its unabashed keyboard-driven explosive pop songs," Ghettoblasterfurther noted, "The music created by Future Generations takes the best elements of indie rock, wraps sweet melodies around those songs to become infections gems of sound."

"All The Same" is available here.

Landscape is the follow up to Future Generations' 2016 eponymous debut. Produced by Justin Gerrish (Vampire Weekend, Hamilton Leithauser), Landscape is the first release from the band to feature their full lineup of Eddie Gore (vocals) Mike Sansevere(synthesizer, guitar, percussion), Eric Grossman (guitar), Devon Sheridan (bass), and Dylan Wells (percussion).

?Throughout Landscape the 5-piece build their pop-minded songcraft with bursts of free-form experimentation. And while the album's abundance of hooky melodies makes each song immediately catchy, they unfold with an intricacy of detail that reveals more nuance and depth with every new listen.

Future Generations are unified by a passion for endless discovery in every element of the artistic process. "Making this album was the most creative time we'd ever experienced together," says Gore. "I remember after the ninth day of recording, we were all walking to the subway together to go home, and we just stopped and looked at each other like, 'This is crazy, what's happening here.' It was this euphoric experience'" In reflecting on their chosen name, Gore points to the band's mission of transmitting that energy to others. "We're all very optimistic people, who are really grateful to get to do what we love together," he says. "Our hope is for future generations to also have that-to get to do what they love, and be with who they love. It's a little idealistic, but I think that encapsulates the whole spirit of the band."
