Secret Sounds Presents...

FOALS

Holy Fire rockers return to NZ for one date only...

Reckless and exhilarating, Oxford indie superstars FOALS are back! Secret Sounds are thrilled to announce the return visit of this acclaimed Mercury-nominated band, who are heading to New Zealand in October.

On their 2008 debut Antidotes, FOALS’ effortless techno reflected one rule: Yannis, Jack, Walter, Edwin and Jimmy wanted guitar music they could dance to. Two years later, FOALS unveiled the Mercury shortlisted Total Life Forever (which included widescreen masterpiece “Spanish Sahara”) In February 2013 delivered their finest album yet: Holy Fire.

Recorded by producers, Flood (PJ Harvey, U2) and Alan Moulder (My Bloody Valentine, Yeah Yeah Yeahs) the album is huge, the first single “Inhaler” has had 2.7m YouTube views (and counting) and their follow-up single “My Number”, is building just as quickly.

With their reputation for ferocious and savage live shows, as many of us witnessed at their astounding performance at Laneway Festival 2011, demand for FOALS tickets will be high – get in quick!
