Upfront Arena presents FOALS
Upfront Arena, an extension of The Bee’s Upfront series, will kick off 2014
with its first act, Foals.
Hailing from Oxford, England, the band was formed by longtime friends
Yannis Philippakis (guitar) and Jack Bevan (drums), along with Andrew Mears
on vocals, guitarist Jimmy Smith, and bassist Walter Gervers.
The quintet aimed to stand out from the other proggier bands in Oxford and
began playing at house parties around the area. Their poppy, jittery, upbeat,
math rock/post-punk sound soon reached the radar of Transgressive
Records, which signed the band on.
Foals then released the singles “Hummer” and “Mathletics”. Their debut
album Antidotes was released in 2008, followed by Total Life Forever (2010)
and Holy Fire (2013).
