Big news out of the Friendly Fires camp this week. First came the announcement that the English group’s debut record was nominated for a 2009 Mercury Prize, and now they are set to jump on to NYLON’s inaugural Winter Music Tour in mid-November. Full bill and routing of the tour is still being confirmed at press time.

Look for the St. Albans trio’s new video for “Kiss of Life” to premiere on MTV today, and is slated to go into regular rotation on its signature networks.

In further (!) Friendly Fires news, Jimmy Kimmel Live! will feature the guys performing “Kiss of Life” on August 25, and XL Recordings will release an expanded version of the group’s self-titled debut through digital providers on September 1st, with indie stores to carry the deluxe CD/DVD package on September 8.
