Foals Kick Off Fall North American Headlining Tour Tonight in Seattle, WA

 
FOALS KICK OFF FALL NORTH AMERICAN HEADLINING TOUR TONIGHT IN SEATTLE, WA
 
LOS ANGELES, CA - SEPTEMBER 23, 2016 - Foals will kick off their fall headlining tour tonight in Seattle, WA at the Paramount Theater. The run will take them across North America, with support on all dates from Bear Hands and Kiev.
 
Following their biggest UK arena tour to date, Foals was most recently in the U.S. for the 15-city Spring Fling Rock AF tour alongside Cage The Elephant, Silversun Pickups, and Bear Hands and additional dates with Silversun Pickups. The band took the festival circuit by storm this summer having performed at Lollapalooza, Coachella, Outside Lands, Shaky Knees, and Hangout Fest, as well as headlining Reading and Leeds.

Foals current album What Went Down was released this past August on Warner Music and emerged to the best reviews of the band's career as it debuted at #3 and commanded a Top 20 chart position for four weeks in the UK. The album also produced the band's first Number 1 at Alternative Radio with "Mountain at My Gates". Shortly after the album's release, the band won 'Best Act In The World' at the Q Awards and received a BBC Music Award Nomination for 'British Artist of the Year'. Foals was also nominated for four awards at the 2016 NME Awards, including 'Best British Band', "Best Live Band', 'Best Album', and 'Best Track'. What Went Down is an album that grapples with questions that are a world away from the bland bleatings of homogenized pop: permanence and impermanence; life and death; solitude; vulnerability; intimacy; passion; rage; humanity - weighty issues that make demands of the people creating that music, and of all those who listen to it, too. Sonically, it's an album that precariously seesaws between primal aggression and naked vulnerability.
 
Foals consists of Yannis Philippakis (vocals/guitar), Jimmy Smith (guitar/keys), Walter Gervers (bass/vocals), Jack Bevan (drums) and Edwin Congreave (keys).
