Super Furry Animals burst onto the music scene in 1995 with the release of their first EP Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch (In Space). They were quickly recognized as being amongst the most interesting and inventive bands of the ’90s British music boom and a string of lauded albums, which included their breakthrough Rings Around The World, , cemented their position as indie rock’s most engaging eccentrics.
In their native Wales they’re considered a bona fide national treasure, and last year saw a special 15th anniversary re-issue of their only entirely Welsh language long player Mwng by Domino Records. To mark the event, Super Furry Animals – dormant since the 2009 touring for their last album Dark Days/Light Years due to individual music projects – got together to perform together again. They headlined festivals around the UK and Europe as well as the 4Knots Festival in New York City in July.
The response from music lovers has been overwhelming as the beloved Furries provide a stellar, career-spanning set replete with fan-familiar costume changes. This forthcoming run of North American live dates is long overdue. The band just added an additional Los Angeles show on February 12th at The Roxy.
