There's no question that Future Islands frontman Samuel Herrings operatic vocals are a force across the trio's albums, particularly last year's On The Water. But in a live setting? Forget about it. Dude owns the crowd. It's eating-out-of-the-palm-of-his-hand status when he takes the stage, as he is theatrical in the best way possible and truly brings the songs to life. So it's with that in mind that you should make a point to see Future Islands if you haven't yet. Oh, and lucky (some of) you, they're hitting the road soon. View the tour dates below.
