Recent weeks have seen Foals: Yannis Philippakis (vocals/guitar), Jimmy Smith (guitar), Jack Bevan (drums) and Edwin Congreave (keys) maintain a busy run of activity. They’ve previewed the new album with three tracks, ‘Into The Surf’, ‘The Runner’ and ‘Black Bull’, which resulted in debut plays courtesy of Annie Mac at Radio 1 and Zane Lowe at Beats 1. They also opened the Mercury Prize ceremony in style, performing ‘In The Luna’ with guest guitarist Felix White of The Maccabees.
Collectively, ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost’ is symbolic of Foals’ trajectory so far. ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 1’ debuted at #2 on the Official Album Charts which made it the band’s joint highest charting set to date and earned them critical acclaim across the board including 5* reviews from NME and The Independent, a Mercury Prize shortlist and a ‘Best Album’ nomination at the upcoming Q Awards.
Foals will be touring the UK next spring and will be heading to Blackpool Empress Ballroom on the 06 May!
