Foals have announced a new song, along with dates for a North American tour. 

Crest Of The Wave marks the fifth and final preview of the band's imminent seventh studio album, 'Life Is Yours', out this Friday (June 17) via ADA/Warner UK Ltd. 

Anchored by tribal drums, the upbeat, Talking Heads-esque track fuses an energetic chorus with ethereal verses, and will feature on the record next to the previously unveiled cuts 2001, Looking High, Wake Me Up, and 2am. Frontman Yannis Philippakis commented:

"A portion of Crest Of The Wave existed in 2011, we had demoed it in Australia and just left it for years. But it was one of those songs which had always been at the back of our minds, like there was some unfinished business there. As we were playing around with it with some of the themes on this record, we cracked it open and really revelled in adding lots of layers to it in the studio. I was looking at the power of the lyrics to transport myself and the listener somewhere else. It’s set in St. Lucia which is an island that has always visually struck me as being very powerful."

In addition to UK dates this summer, including a headline set at Latitude Festival, Foals will support the record with a North American tour this fall, kicking off on October 28 in Las Vegas and wrapping up in Portland, Maine on December 18.

They'll also make stops in Austin, Vancouver, Denver, Oakland, Mexico City, Los Angeles, Toronto, Cleveland, New York, and more. Tickets go on general sale at 10am local time on June 17.

They will also play a run of intimate UK performances early in 2023. Tickets for those concerts are already on sale.
