Gig Information

An absolute math-rock juggernaut, FOALS is coming to New Zealand for one show at the Auckland Town Hall on Friday July 12 in the middle of a creative frenzy that has produced not one, but two new records. Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost (Part 1) was released in March, with Part 2 to follow later this year, signalling a return to the spasmodic angles of their debut Antidotes while simultaneously going further off-base than ever before.

From playing chaotic house parties in Oxford to becoming major festival headliners across Europe, Foals’ trajectory has been remarkable. Always eager to break boundaries, Foals’ new album ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 1’ is the most ambitious statement of their career. It entered the UK charts at #2, with many critics tipping it as a contender for album of the year.

The band – Yannis Philippakis (vocals/guitar), Jimmy Smith (guitar), Jack Bevan (drums) and Edwin Congreave (keys) – will release ‘Part 2’ in the autumn.

“They’re two halves of the same locket,” explains Philippakis. “They can be listened to and appreciated individually, but fundamentally they are companion pieces.”

Foals have earned critical acclaim and fan devotion in equal measure, with highlights including Best Live Act at the Q Awards, Best Album at the NME Awards, 1.7 million album sales, and over half a billion streams at Spotify since 2015. Their first visit to New Zealand since 2013, Foals will perform to Kiwi fans after headlining Australia’s Splendour in the Grass.
