"Honest and life-affirming and infectious, and it's that rare concentration of directness and simplicity that makes Fang Island so uniquely and wonderfully inclusive." Best New Music -- Pitchfork

"Fang Island are simply killer fun, a proper gang who sing collectively and pummel their guitars without recourse to errant soloing." Four Stars -- MOJO

 In what has been a year of nearly constant touring, Fang Island again hits the road in November for a stretch of North American headlining dates. The Brooklyn quintet previously toured supporting The Flaming Lips, Stone Temple Pilots, Matt & Kim, Coheed and Cambria, and Red Sparowes as well as headlining dates in Europe.
