FUTURE ISLANDS WAILS ON THE WATERFRONT!

The viciously heartwarming growl of a musical warrior pretty much defines a Future Islands performance. Samuel T. Herring’s stage uniform: black t-shirt, belt and slacks, dark eyes & gentle rage. The Baltimore-born band also includes keyboardist Gerrit Welmers and guitarist William Cashion.
