Hello Future Islands!
We are EAR PWR(former Hide And Seek) from Winston Salem/Asheville.
I think we saw art lord every time you came to the werehouse and I saw future islands here in asheville a while back. you guys sure put on an amazing show.
Anyways, the reason i am writing this message is to ask you if you wanted to play a show with us and the ZOM ZOMS (Austin TX) in Greensboro on October the 26th. We need another band to play and you would be perfect.
We also have a dj that is going to be spinning all night long.
pretty neat huh?
And the next night, we will be playing with the zom zoms again in your home town at the spazzatorium.
That is all i have to say.
What do you think?
we love you guys so much
