Foals confirm 2020 UK headline tour dates, find out how to get tickets

The experimental rock band will tour the UK in spring 2020 and play a summer show at Cardiff Castle

Foals have announced details of a forthcoming UK tour. Tickets for the shows will be available from 9.30am on Fri 25 Oct.

The tour kicks off at Edinburgh's Usher Hall on Wed 29 Apr and will also see the band headline gigs in London, Blackpool and Birmingham throughout the spring, as well Cardiff Castle in July.

The announcement comes ahead of the release of the second part of their dual album project Everything Not Saved Will be Lost – Part 2, due to drop later this week.

The new record follows Everything Not Saved Will be Lost – Part 1, which was released earlier this year to positive reviews and debuted at No.2 on the Official UK Albums Chart.

About the dual release, frontman Yannis Philippakis explained: 'They're two halves of the same locket. They can be listened to and appreciated individually, but fundamentally, they are companion pieces'.

Songs 'The Runner', 'Black Bull' and 'Into the Surf' have been shared in advance of Everything Not Saved Will be Lost – Part 2's release.

Foals formed in Oxford, England in 2005 and have released five studio albums to date: Antidotes (2008), Total Life Forever (2010), Holy Fire (2013), What Went Down (2015), and Everything Not Saved Will be Lost – Part 1 (2019).
