Perpetually positive guitar heroes Fang Island are currently in the studio recording the followup to last year’s wildly popular self-titled debut. Small hints of the recording process have been popping up on theband’s Twitter account, and we hope to have more samples of the work in progress in the near future. The band will take a short break from recording to hit the road in September for a series of East Coast shows, some of which will be with The Joy FormidablePlease see below for complete dates.
