Ahead of the release of their eagerly-anticipated new album, Oxford indie band Foals have announced a major UK tour for 2020 – and kicks off at the Usher Hall in Edinburgh in April.
The Yannis Philippakis-fronted outfit release new album Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 2 on October 18, and fans who pre-order the record from the band’s website until October 21 will gain early access to tickets for the UK headline tour on October 23 at 9.30am.
Otherwise, tickets go on sale October 25 at 10am via www.foals.co.uk/tour.
Foals have partnered with Twickets as their official ticket resale platform to protect their fans against ticket touting. Twickets is an ethical ticket resale marketplace, enabling fans to sell spare tickets at face value or less.
Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost will also be released on CD, digital and vinyl formats. Special editions include an orange vinyl that will be available exclusively through indie stores and a picture disc which is designed to be added to the Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Collector’s Edition boxset.
Recent weeks have seen Foals 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 No.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 five-star reviews from NME and The Independent, a Mercury Prize shortlist and a Best Album nomination at the upcoming Q Awards.
Most recently, Foals unveiled details of Rip Up The Road, a new documentary and concert film that will be launched on Amazon Prime Video on November 15. It’s accompanied by the Rip Up The Road live EP which is available to stream exclusively on Amazon Music as a part of their ongoing Amazon Originals series.
