Earlier, this week, Foals confirmed details of more rescheduled tour dates in the UK, which have been moved to 2021 due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The four-piece announced last month that their planned headline shows in Edinburgh, London, Blackpool and Birmingham — which had been due to take place between April 29 and May 9 this year — had been pushed back to next year.

Reviewing 2010’s ‘Total Life Forever’ upon its release, NME wrote: “Throughout is a braveness and naive sense of wonder that confirms what ‘Antidotes’ suggested: that Foals will never be anything other than Foals, and if we follow them into the fog then, well, visions of startling clarity await.”

Yannis Philippakis recently spoke to NME about his time in lockdown and gave a guide to battling boredom while isolating.
