Foster The People set for 'Super' Sophomore Album
Foster the People is out to prove there's more to the band than the shoes on their feet. Or in this case, some "Pumped Up Kicks."
In case you haven't heard, the band's new album, "Supermodel," is set to drop March 19. The wait has been a long time coming, seeing how the guys played the Firefly Music Festival back in June 2013 and performed four new songs many thought would be a preview to the new project: "Level Up," "Nevermind," "Fire Escape" and "Coming of Age." But the release date got pushed back because Columbia didn't want it to get lost in the blitz of fourth-quarter competition.
With tons of talk that the new album is "more organic and more human," not to mention guitar-driven, the band has hinted at a few new tracks before we get to hear the whole thing, including "Beginner's Guide to Destroying the Moon," and "Are You What You Wanna Be." The 12-track effort is led by the bright riffs, layers vocals and even a few handclaps on "Coming of Age," which was chosen as the lead single.
To get fans pumped for the new material, Foster The People played a free show in Los Angeles on January 23. In addition, they also recently announced shows and festival appearances as part of their first North American tour since 2012. Kicking off in April at Coachella, the tour will include performances at Governors Ball, Coutnerpoint and Big Guava, as well as headline dates throughout the United States and Canada.
Foster the People - The Beginnings
Foster the People is an indie/electric band of three 20-something men out of LA. They formed in 2009 and became popular for the song Pumped up Kicks which made its way into pop-culture media with an appearance on SyFy's Warehouse 13. The band has released one album, 'Torches', and is having what appears to be a successful tour following up on the success of this freshman effort.
