Looks like those Foals boys have been busy building a crew.
First off comes the news that the spindly quintet have recorded some special b-sides with none other than Keiran Hebden. The three tracks will arrive later this year, trapped in the tracks of etched 12" vinyl. Poly-vinyl? Tasty.
Not content with just boasting Hebden, they've apparently accepted a 'personal invitation' from Bloc Party to support the band's December tour. Though quite who Bloc Party think they are issuing 'personal invitations' is beyond me. Standard surely?
Anyway, here are the dates:
12 Glasgow SECC
13 Manchester Central
14 London Alexandra Palace
15 London Alexandra Palace
Ally Pally eh? Good stuff. Preceding all of this is the single release of 'Mathletics', which is out through Transgressive in July on limited 7" and download.
This is all...Transmission ends...
