Ground Control Touring Welcomes Friendship

Posted 04/20/2022

Ground Control Touring welcome Friendship who announced today they will release their next full length on Merge Records.

Friendship’s roots trace back to Yarmouth, Maine, the small town where Wriggins, Gill, and Cormier-O’Leary grew up. (Friendship took their name from Friendship, Maine, about an hour up the coast from Yarmouth, but that’s neither here nor there.) They moved to Philly in 2015, and the Friendship band has expanded and contracted since, releasing several EPs and linking up with Orindal Records in Chicago for 2017’s Shock Out of Season and 2019’s Dreamin’ (Orindal also released Wriggins’ solo EP Mr. Chill last year).

We’ll have plenty more beans to spill on the album soon, but ahead of tonight’s tour dates with Indigo De Souza, Friendship offer “Ugly Little Victory” to the world, a song that’s been kicking around the band’s setlists for a few years but is yet to be released…until this very moment!

Check out the new single along with tour dates at their artist page now
