Foals @ T5, 5/4/2012 (more by Kurt Christensen)
As mentioned previously, Foals' new album, Holy Fire, is out tomorrow (2/12) and is a confident follow-up to 2010's Total Life Forever. Did you catch the online listening party the band hosted ont their website last Thursday?
Foals were already revealed as being part of the 2013 Coachella Festival but have just announced a full North American tour, including a stop in NYC at Terminal 5 on May 3 which is almost exactly two years to the day the band last played that venue. The show is with Blondfire and Surfer Blood and tickets to that show go on sale Friday (2/15) at noon.
Over the weekend, someone took the music video for The Village People's 1985 single, "Sex Over the Phone," and set it to Foal's "My Number" and the results are kind of great. That video and a list of all tour dates, are below.
