Final Fantasy announces new album, signing to Domino Records, extensive touring with Timber Timbre and The Mountain Goats.

Heartland exists. The product of nine months of work in four countries, this is the third Final Fantasy full-length, following 2006’s He Poos Clouds LP and 2008’s Spectrum, 14th Century and Plays To Please EPs.  It will be available on double 10” vinyl, compact disc and digital formats in the early days of 2010, released by Domino Records worldwide outside of Canada.

Preceding Heartland’s release, Final Fantasy will do a west coast Canadian tour with the Toronto group Timber Timbre as a special guest. This will be followed by an appearance at the Halifax Pop Explosion, playing a full programme of songs for looped violin and voice and backed by the Nova Scotia Symphony.

To finish the year, we’re also pleased to announce that The Mountain Goats have invited Final Fantasy to join them as a special guest on their November tour of the United States.
