The Fiery Furnaces Announce Three Shows with Fred Armisen

The duo also shared the previously physical-only B-side “The Fortune Tellers Revenge.”

Matthew and Eleanor Friedberger are getting their band The Fiery Furnaces back together for a few shows this November. After remaining mostly quiet over the past decade, the three shows, following this year’s Pitchfork Festival appearance, will take place in Brooklyn, Chicago, and Los Angeles. They will also be accompanied by comedic polymath Fred Armisen.

“We’re very excited to be playing again, to get a chance to do new things with old stuff, or old things with new people,” the band said in a press release. “And we’re very happy to have Fred opening the shows. We’ll be six on stage, joined by: Brian Betancourt, Noah Hecht, Emily Lee, and Cameron Wisch.”

The group also shared a digital version of the B-side to their previously physical-only, Third Man–released single “Down at the So and So on Somewhere” called “The Fortune Teller’s Revenge,” which was their first recording in a decade. Check it out below, along with the select tour dates.
