Foals frontman Yannis Philippakis may have just teased some new music from the band.
Posting to his Instagram stories, Philippakis appears to be in the studio. The clip features some synth sounds while someone chats in the background.
Adding the speak-no-evil monkey emoji to the clip, it appears that Philippakis is hinting at something secret. See screenshots of the clip below and see it for yourself on Philippakis’ Instagram here.
The band announced they were back in the studio towards the end of 2017, with Philippakis confirming they had begun writing new tunes in October.
Speaking of a new album, Philippakis said: “We’re in the marinating stage of thinking about getting onto the next record. We have a couple of bits written but it’s in the very early stages. We’re in the conception stage, we’re not pregnant yet, we’re just trying to have the kid.”
The Oxford band released their last album ‘What Went Down’ in 2015.
Bassist Walter Gervers left the band back in January, with the band sharing a statement:
“To all our fans,” they wrote. “Sadly we have to announce that our mate Water has decided to leave the band to pursue a new life. The parting has been sad but we remain firm friends. He’ll always be out brother, we love him and wish him well in his future endeavours,” they wrote.
The event series takes place in South London and aims to “bring together a unique gathering of musicians and individuals to collaborate and improvise live for a totally one-off performance”.
