The second part of Foals’ ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost’ album double header will be “heavier”, apparently.
Speaking to NME at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Middlesborough over the weekend, frontman Yannis Philippakis explained: “It’s heavier. The guitars are at the front [and] there’s more guitars.”
“There’s a 10-minute awesome space jam – like a Stanley Kubrick prog epic – and then there’s just some big riffs all over the record. It’s quite different from the first part, which we felt was more dance-y and more new wave…It’s more of a rock record with a capital “R” – maybe two “R’s.”
We’re expecting more news on ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Part 2’, which follows up on its numerically smaller sibling that arrived earlier this year, at some point soon-ish. They’ve promised it’ll be here before the end of 2019, basically.
The band have been playing new material on the road of late, specifically this sounds-like-an-absolute-banger ‘Black Bull’, which you can check out below.
Foals are set to hit ‘the festivals’ this summer, including a headline slot at Truck. Taking place between 26th and 28th July, tickets are on sale now.
