The band are currently working on new material for their third studio record, which will serve as the follow-up to 2011's Pala.
Speaking about the new songs, drummer Jack Savidge told NME: "We want to explore some other things.
"We consider Pala a continuation of the first record and I think this time we'll want to come back with something new to keep everybody else interested.
"We won't come back until we have something that's valid and distinct. You can't just knock out the same stuff over and over. We're trying to push ourselves forward."
Friendly Fires also revealed that they have worked with Primal Scream producer Andrew Weatherall on a new track, which will be released this summer.
"You'll all hear it soon. We're really pleased with it," Savidge explained. "We were never in the studio with him, he hates having musicians in the studio.
"We did it all with delivering CDs via management. He took what we'd done, ripped it apart and put it back together in his own way. It sounds great and it's a real summer track. A kind of languid summer track."
Friendly Fires will play sets at this year's RockNess, V Festival and Bestival music event. They will also play a headline slot at Lovebox in London's Victoria Park on June 16.
