Foals “What Went Down”

It’s been one day since Foals released their epic new single What Went Down and it took the GATRS about 24 hours to process the epic-ness of the song but now there is a video release… Holy shit.
The  new album is a 10-track effort and is a “primal, intense, sometimes harrowing album of extremes which touches upon the depths of madness whilst also exhibiting some of the most beautiful pop songs the band have ever written,” according to a press release. What Went Down will be released via Warner Music in August and it’s the follow-up to 2013’s Holy Fire, it was recorded in a 19th-century mill in southern France with James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, HAIM, Mumford and Sons, etc ).
Lead songwriter Yannis Philippakis is said to have been inspired by themes of “cultural identity, generational anxiety, cynicism, pessimism and heartbreak.” “I wanted to tap into my inner madman,” he says, “and feel like I was channeling some sort of fevered creature.”

What Went Down will be released via Warner Bros and is available for pre-order here.

About Naomi (866 Articles)
The most important thing to know about me is that I'm a melomaniac and shameless fangirl. I am addicted to concerts, they are my sanctuary and safe haven. When I'm on the front row on the barricade of a concert... I feel that I am truly home. I'm also a proud and happy vinyl crate-digger. Whether it's searching for vinyl at flea markets, garage sales, vintage shops... I am a sucker for the crackling of a good record when the needle drops on a turntable. I am a true Cancer with Moon in Cancer and ascending in Pisces. Also, loves dogs (especially my son Elvis) and quality food porn pictures. Social Media: @youthquakermimi
