Prior to last year, the last we heard from the brother/sister duo of Eleanor and Matthew Friedberger’s band Fiery Furnaces was 2009’s “I’m Going Away”. After a long 11-year long hiatus, The Fiery Furnaces have returned last year with a new single “Down At the So and So on Somewhere” now they have announced some new live dates and digitally shared the song “The Fortune Teller’s Revenge,” which was originally the B-side of “Down at the So and So on Somewhere” when it was released on a 7-inch last year by Third Man Records.

Eleanor and Matthew Friedberger formed The Fiery Furnaces in New York City in 2000. Their debut album “Gallowsbird’s Bark” (Rough Trade Records) was released to critical acclaim in 2003. In the following seven years, they released eight more albums and toured extensively throughout North America, Europe, Australia and Japan. The band’s last performance was nearly a decade ago at the Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona. In the meantime Eleanor and Matthew have released eight solo albums, collectively.

The live dates happen this November and will be supported by comedian/musician Fred Armison.

“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 collectively say 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.”
