Earlier this year, Foals frontman Yannis Philippakis revealed that the band had started work on the follow-up to 2013’s ‘Holy Fire’, saying that they had returned to their “stinkbox studio” to write new songs.

‘Holy Fire’ was released in February 2013 and reached Number Two on the UK album charts. It was nominated for a Mercury Prize, while lead single ‘Inhaler’ won Best Track at the NME Awards 2013.
