Foster The People Announce Fall Tour Dates

Los Angeles based trio, Foster The People, will celebrate the release of Torches with a top 10 chart debut this week. The band, whose single “Pumped Up Kicks” is currently # 2 on the alternative charts, will mark the success of their full-length, debut with over 33,000 albums sold in it’s first week. The band made appearances on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Last Call with Carson Daly, KROQ’s Kevin and Bean and Loveline last week in support of Torches, which critics are calling the “album of the summer.”

With a sold-out summer tour underway, the band are proud to announce they will be back this fall with another round of headlining dates. Kicking off with a performance at Austin City Limits, trailing across North America and back, the band will hit some new cities including Orlando, Indianapolis, Fargo and more.

“..the album is consistently catchy from start to finish.” – Filter

“Accessible yet challenging, gleaming yet gritty, pop yet petrifying: Foster The People are a fresh evolution of modern music” – NME

“L.A. rock band that threw chum in the water with its single ‘Pumped Up Kicks’ moves in for the kill with debut album.” – Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

“Torches the ideal summer album.” -The Daily Californian

“With songs as strong as the ones on Torches, Foster can rest assured that his audiences will be quite astounded. They’ll not only marvel at the fact that Foster has more up his sleeve than “Pumped Up Kicks,” but that Foster The People are just getting started.” – XPN
