Day of the Dog

Furman released Day of the Dog in October 2013, also produced by Tim Sandusky, recorded at Studio Ballistico and released through Bar/None Records This album got Furman notable press in the UK, receiving a 5/5 review in The Guardian newspaper by Michael Hann: "Ezra Furman has made an album of classicist rock'n'roll that never feels like an exercise, but a living, breathing piece of self expression" and an 8/10 review in NME "A bratty, ragged take on New York Dolls, Spector-era Ramones and E Street Band carnival rock An unexpected gem"

The band toured the UK in 2014 and were met with positive press "The punk-fired rock'n'roller isn't too cool to be touched by a richly deserved rave reception" wrote Malcolm Jack for The Guardian, giving the show a five-star review The tour finished in the autumn with a sold out gig at The Scala in London on September 2014

Perpetual Motion People

In early 2015 Furman signed to Bella Union and on April 27 Furman announced that a new album, Perpetual Motion People, would be released on July 6 in the UK and Europe and on July 10 in the US Aided by positive critical reviews Perpetual Motion People peaked in the UK charts on its entry week at #23 A series of concerts in the Europe and the USA took place to co-ordinate with the release of Furman's album

In 2016 Furman released the EP Big Fugitive Life, saying it felt like the "end of a chapter, musically" and calling the collection a "group of our favourite orphaned songs", four of which missed out on inclusion on Perpetual Motion People, and two which came from the time of The Year of No Returning

In September 2017, Furman's social media posts indicated that The Boy-Friends, active since 2012, had been renamed or reformed as The Visions Apparently no change was made to the line-up of Ben Joseph, Jorgen Jorgensen, Sam Durkes and Tim Sandusky
