Foals

The five indie rockers of Foals have finally emerged with their dancing shoes freshly polished and a new studio album, Holy Fire. Released on February 12th, the album is the third full-length record from the Oxford-based band, offering a further departure from the cold-cut, hi-fi style of the group’s 2008 debut, AntidotesHoly Fire still displays Foals’ unlikely mix of dance punk and math rock, but with expansive sounds and a fearless pop sensibility woven throughout, it’s far more confident and less calculated than the band’s previous offerings.

Foals dropped the lead single off of the album “Inhaler,” in November of 2012, setting the tone for a more emotionally driven record. While the familiar acute attention to detail remains, the album embraces playfulness with funky atmospheric moments incorporated into the Foals’ signature dance rock tunes.

The band is now gearing up for a North American tour that kicks off in Reno, NV on February 10th and continues to The Fillmore in San Francisco before heading to the desert for the first weekend of Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on the 12th. Check out the rest of the tour dates below!
