When asked if they would showcase new material at their shows, Foals frontman Yannis told NME: “I think yeah, it’s more likely to be that. I can’t tell if we’ll have written anything new by then. We haven’t played London all that much in the last few years. We did Wembley and Village Underground and I think that was it. We did the festivals and stuff, but not in London.
“So it’s a chance to play London again and it’s a really good line-up. Over the last few years it’s been really great and I know it’ll be great again this year. It’s close to home so we don’t have to rent a bus, we can just get the tube.”
He also revealed that he’d been working on a project with Fela Kuti drummer Tony Allen.
