The track comes from their most recent album 'Holy Fire'
Foals have unveiled another NSFW video, this time for new single ‘Bad Habit’.
Taken from their current album ‘Holy Fire’, the video was directed by Nabil and features the band’s frontman Yannis Philippakis following a naked woman across a sand dune scattered landscape. Click above to watch the video.
Nabil, who has also directed videos for Frank Ocean and Kanye West, was behind the similarly NSFW video for Foals’ last single, ‘Late Night’, the filming of which almost led to a real-life death.
Speaking about one particular scene in which a character from the video hangs himself, guitarist Jimmy Smith told NME that things almost got too realistic: “In the suicide scene the guy actually hung himself by mistake, which was pretty bonkers. We were watching it on the screens next door and it was really realistic, we thought he was doing an amazing job acting. Then he started clawing at the belt and went all limp. Nabil had his head in his hands and we all thought we had killed a Romanian dude.”
Foals are set to headline this year’s Latitude Festival alongside Kraftwerk and Bloc Party. The festival will take place July 19-21 at Henham Park in Southwold, Suffolk. The band will bring the festival to a close on the Sunday night, marking their first major festival headline set.
They will also play the first ever Longitude festival in Ireland, alongside Vampire Weekend, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Kraftwerk, Jake Bugg, Django Django and The Maccabees on the same weekend. Longitude will take place in Marlay Park against the backdrop of the Dublin mountains. It is being held by events organiser MCD, who put on Oxegen Festival, which did not take place in 2012.
