A day after their latest disco-infused rock album “Pala” dropped, the Brit lads from Friendly Fires landed in New York to kickoff the North American leg of their tour. It was a sweaty affair.

Anyone familiar with lead singer Ed Macfarlane’s antics knew what they were in for. Have a look at their music video for “Kiss of Life” (below) to get an idea in case you’re unfamiliar. The guy likes to dance. And not just on stage. He kicked things off by jumping down into the audience pit mid-song and proceeded to groove with the crowd. Good vibrations all around.

Below is another pic snapped at the concert.

They capped the night off with an extended performance of “Kiss of Life.” Watch Macfarlane shake em’ hips below:

Friendly Fires next hits Washington DC on May 26th. Check out their upcoming tour dates here.
