“Joy and fury,” Florence Welch reveals, are what propelled her to pen the latest Florence + The Machine album, High as Hope. In a way, joy and fury have always been vital to Florence + The Machine’s singular sound: bombastic, soaring anthems that are somehow both deeply emotional and infectiously buoyant at the same time. After a string of hit singles like “Dog Days Are Over” and “Shake It Out,” and a few whirlwind years of touring rife with, as Welch describes it, “the parties and the video shoots and the madness” that worldwide success brought, she’s found new joy in getting back in the studio to record some of the most ambitious, most heartbreaking, most impossible-not-to-dance-along-to songs of her career. (Need proof? Just take the soulful lead single “Hunger” for a spin.) With the dog days of summer finally over, now’s your chance to experience all this joy and fury live as Florence + The Machine perform under the stars at L.A.’s iconic Hollywood Bowl.
