Highly influential post punk stars, The Psychedelic Furs release their new album, their first in nearly 30 years, 'Made Of Rain,' through Cooking Vinyl
From its exhilarating opening bars, Made Of Rain - sounds like The Psychedelic Furs and them alone. It's a joy to hear again, fresher than ever. Their peerless permutations of art, aggression and ambience drive the dynamics, and it's always been this originality which has set them apart, a cut above. The album was produced by Richard Fortus and The Psychedelic Furs. Whilst mixing duties were handled by Tim Palmer (David Bowie, U2, Robert Plant).
In recent years the band have toured continually completing a tour of North America in 2019 and played acclaimed shows at The Hollywood Bowl, All Points East, Hyde Park and Benic ssim. A celebrated handful of UK shows including headlining the prestigious Meltdown at the Royal Festival Hall at Robert Smith of The Cure's request. This past October, the band played a sold-out tour of the UK and Europe which culminated in a triumphant show at the Roundhouse in London.
The last few years has seen the band's legend growing, highlighted by the fact they have scored over 150 million streams of their songs worldwide. Their influence since arriving on the post-punk scorched-earth landscape four decades ago has reverberated and resonated from everyone from The Killers to REM to Foo Fighters to Bob Dylan has sung their praises. "I'm aware of the fact that people cite us an influence", says Richard, "though I don't often recognise it in their music. It's gratifying of course, as it is that there's still an interested and enthusiastic audience for us. That's an honour." - The Guardian
