The highly anticipated follow-up to Holy Fire will be released August 28th, What Went Down is on everyone’s can’t wait list.
After sharing the title track/video last month, today they have blessed us with another new song… Mountain at My Gates premiered today on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show and is officially out. It’s everything we love about Foals, it’s exhilarating and a bit tame at first but the buildup is intense and an absolute rager. The interplay of guitar riffs and drum beats along with the bass is thrillingly invigorating.
Yannis Philippakis is said to have been inspired by themes of “cultural identity, generational anxiety, cynicism, pessimism and heartbreak,” according to a press release. “I wanted to tap into my inner madman,” he says, “and feel like I was channeling some sort of fevered creature.” Which makes absolute sense when listening to the two releases so far, we cannot wait to hear the rest of the album.
