Oxford, England (2005 – present)

Foals are an / band which formed in Oxford, England in 2005. They are currently signed to Transgressive Records in the United Kingdom and Sub Pop in the United States. They released their debut album Antidotes on 24 March 2008 in the UK, and 8 April 2008 in the US. The band’s second album, Total Life Forever, was released on 10 May 2010. Foals also released a mixtape named Tapes in July 2012 for !K7 Records. In November 2012, as an advance off their third album Holy Fire (February 2013), the band released “Inhaler”.

In early 2007, the band released the limited edition 7” singles Hummer and Mathletics, both produced by Gareth Parton. In the summer of 2007 Foals began working on their debut album in New York. It was produced by Dave Sitek of TV On The Radio, however, the band decided to mix the album themselves, stating that Sitek made the first master copy of the album sound like “it was recorded in the Grand Canyon”. Yannis has stated multiple times during various interviews that Foals and Dave Sitek are on good terms, even though the copy by Sitek was rejected by the band.

Foals released their debut album, entitled Antidotes, on 24 March 2008 in the UK and 8 April 2008 in the US. The album was a commercial success in the United Kingdom, debuting at No. 3 in the UK Albums Charts. The album was a minor success in other countries, charting in Japan, France and the Netherlands. Non-UK versions of the album include the early Parton produced singles.

    I was deeply in love with Holy Fire and TLF. I tought Antidotes was a bad album too. Tought it was too screamy, annoyn', too Modest Mouse. But damn, I gave it a chance. YES, Cassius sucks, its a no pleasure. But Olympic Airlines, Heavy Water and Red Socks Pugie are an amazing trio. They carry the whole album theirselves. It turns out that they are my most listened songs. Don't fool yourself Stefanszz. Yes, they evolved indeed and HF and TLF are superior than Antidotes, but it sure left some gems of back then.

    I dunno, I just find that album annoying and not very complex.

    @Stefanszz I do think they matured quite a bit after Antidotes. Their entire discography is great, personally.

    Wtf? Antidotes sucks. Their last 2 albums are amazing. They did rediscover themselves after Antidotes, thankfully.

    Wouldn't guess people think they changed their sound. I still hear the same soft math-rock influences on their 2nd and 3rd albums that were on their first! People need to stop being so close-minded and only worshipping Antidotes, because the rest is just as good.
