As the release of the eagerly anticipated ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 2’ approaches on October 18th, Foals have announced a major UK tour for 2020 including dates London Olympia, Utilita Arena Birmingham and Cardiff Castle.
‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 2’ is now available to pre-order, with ‘Black Bull’, ‘The Runner’ and ‘Into The Surf’ provided as instant downloads. ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 2’ 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: 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.
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 15th. 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.
