Foals Announce Tour Dates, ‘Antidotes’ Release Date, Free mp3

Tuesday, 26 February 2008

Oxford-based indie-dance-rock band Foals have announced the release of their debut full-length, Antidotes, due out April 8 on the mother of all indie labels, Sub Pop.

After meeting up in Oxford, the five gents crowded around 20-year-old Yannis Philippakis and forged on to make dance music for yuppies, or maybe even dance music for athletes? Yannis explains, “We wanted to make music that was very technical, that wasn’t just party music, but at the same time you could dance to it.”

The newly signed band is putting the final touches on their upcoming release and gracing us with a complimentary mp3 for the track “Balloons,” which can be downloaded below. And soon after the album hits shelves—or hard drives—the band will hit the road, touring 16 dates in the U.S.
