Amidst constant touring the band released their live opus Set List in 2003 which debuted at No 1 in Ireland. Continuing their relentless global touring schedule, they signed an international record deal with Anti/Epitaph and released their 5th studio album Burn The Maps in 2004. It too went straight to No 1.
In 2005 the band played a sold-out show for 20,000 at Dublin’s Marlay Park and spent most of the year touring while Burn The Maps finished at No 5 in the New York Times end of year Top 10 releases. In 2006 they released their 6th studio album The Cost.
The Frames reconvened for their 20 & 25th year anniversaries with a string of sold out shows worldwide. 2020 marks the 30th year of musical collaboration and friendship. The band were looking forward to gathering again for a one off show in Dublin on June 20th but things for us all took a sharp left turn, and we now look toward a 31st year party instead with a live show in the same place in June 2021.
