Throwing caution to the wind, The Psychedelic Furs will embark on a US tour behind last year’s excellent Made Of Rain in a couple weeks. In normaler times, they’d probably have a Toronto date and in moderately abnormal times, I’d consider trekking to the Buffalo show, but as it stands, I’ll just listen to the record. And also, now, this new track they just released from those sessions. Says frontman Richard Butler:
‘Evergreen’ is something that we did while we were putting together Made Of Rain. It’s a song about memory and the passing of time.– Richard Butler
And in related Furs news, former guitarist John Ashton, who played on all the Furs records through 2009, has been diagnosed with prostate cancer and friend and bassist to the stars Gail Ann Dorsey has started a GoFundMe to help defray the expenses around his treatment.
