Never miss another 'Foals' show
With their winter tour sold out, Foals have announced UK tour dates for March 2013!
With two top 10 albums already under their belt, the Oxford five-piece Foals prepare to return with their third studio album. The new album is titled 'Holy Fire' and is due for UK release Feb 11th 2013.
This event takes place at Manchester Academy, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Foals formed in Oxford in 2005. The band's musical influences are varied, with members citing minimal techno, Arthur Russell, the Irish based math rock band The Redneck Manifesto, Krautrock bands such as Harmonia, and Talking Heads as their main sources of inspiration. Their musical style, however, can be more directly linked to various genres such as math rock, indie Rock or New rave.
After forming in 2005, Foals quickly made a name for themselves as one of the hottest live bands in the UK. With debut album Antidotes incurring chaotic living room gigs, follow-up Total Life Forever saw the band exploring a heavier sound, and stadiums beckoned by the time the critically-acclaimed album Holy Fire arrived in 2013.
Their most recent body of work, 2015’s What Went Down, has only served to cement the band’s reputation as a force to be reckoned with. Routinely earning five star reviews and accolades for their live shows, Foals were named as Best Live Act by Q in 2013, then, simply, Best Act In The World 2015.
