Foals to play Thetford Forest gig in summer
Rock band Foals are to play Thetford Forest High Lodge arena on Thursday, June 20.
Foals are frontman Yannis Philippakis, Jimmy Smith (guitar), Jack Bevan (drums) and Edwin Congreave (keys).
From playing chaotic house parties in their home city of Oxford to becoming major festival headliners across Europe, Foals’ trajectory since being formed in 2005 has been remarkable.
They’ve earned critical acclaim (NME and Q Award wins, plus Mercury Prize, Ivor Novello and BRIT Award nominations) and fan devotion (1.7 million sales of their four Gold-certified albums, plus over half-a-billion streams at Spotify since 2015) in equal measure. And while the majority of contemporaries have fallen by the wayside, Foals continue to hit new peaks.
Foals again embrace that love for the unconventional with the bravest and most ambitious project of their career: not one, but two new albums: Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost. A pair of releases, separate but related, they share a title, themes and artwork. ‘Part 1’ will be released on March 8, with ‘Part 2’ following in the autumn.
Tickets £39.50 (plus £4.45 booking fee) go on sale at 9am, Friday, February 1, from Forestry Commission box office tel 03000 680400 or buy online: www.forestryengland.uk/music
