Catch them in April at the LA Philharmonic’s Brooklyn Festival with the likes of Charilift and Sufjan Stevens. Make sure to follow them on Instagram if you want to see those aforementioned puppy pictures for yourself!

Q&A: Wearing Wifebeaters, Growing Roses And Wu-Tang-Inspired Spirituality, As Told By Foals

 

It’s an exciting time to be a Foals fan and not just for those who went to the music video shoot for “My Number,” in London last month. 


Foals toured Australia at the beginning of the year (in late February they will embark on a sold-out UK leg) as well as perform all over Europe.
