Signed Valentines Cards From Islands

What better way to celebrate the most romantic of holidays then with a personalized Valentine's card from Islands. The revered modernist pop band will be releasing their brand new album A Sleep & A Forgetting on February 14th. Now fans who preorder the record will get a limited edition (only 500 made) Valentine's Day card designed, signed and numbered by the group's singer-songwriter Nick Thorburn.

To preorder Islands new record A Sleep & A Forgetting and receive a limited edition signed Valentine's card, go to the Anti Store.

A Sleep & A Forgetting is the anticipated follow up to Islands critically heralded record Vapours. The new album offers all the shimmering sonic textures and irresistible melodies that have come to define Islands enduring appeal, but there is a deeply personal cathartic undercurrent to the songs. This time band leader Nick Thorburn has infused the songs with a personal introspection that gives the record a powerful emotional resonance.

The band will be performing a select series of live dates across North America. The shows will be held in intimate venues recreating the confessional and deeply personal tone of their enthralling new album.
