WATCH THE VIDEO FOR THE DEBUT SINGLE “INHALER” NOW

Oxford, England’s Foals have announced the release of its third full-length album, Holy Fire, available via Warner Music Canada on February 12, 2013. The debut single “Inhaler” premiered yesterday in the UK on BBC1’s Zane Lowe show, closely followed by a US premiere on Pitchfork. “Inhaler” is being given away to fans who pre-order Holy Fire from iTunes Canada, starting today.

Produced by Flood & Moulder (PJ Harvey, Nine Inch Nails, Smashing Pumpkins) at Assault & Battery studios in London, Holy Fire is the Oxford five-piece’s most direct and fully-realized album yet. Of the electric “Inhaler,” front man Yannis Philippakis says "It's heavy, that song; it was liberating," adding that it is the sound of the band shedding their inhibitions. The Dave Ma-directed video premiered yesterday at Exclaim.ca – watch it here: http://exclaim.ca/MusicVideo/ClickHear/foals-inhaler_nsfw_video

Foals released their debut album Antidotes in 2008, followed by 2010’s breakthrough Total Life Forever. Both are certified gold. Total Life Forever was nominated for the 2010 Mercury Prize and they received five nods at the 2011 NME awards, winning Best Single for “Spanish Sahara.”
The band will hit the road on a small club tour in the UK next month, look for them in North America in the spring. For more info visit http://www.foals.co.uk/ or https://www.facebook.com/Foalsforever
