Foals has announced the release of their third full-length album, Holy Fire, available via Warner Bros Records in the US on February 12, 2013. First single, "Inhaler" premiered today in the UK on BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe show, closely followed by a US premiere on Pitchfork.

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 today on NME.com - watch it here: http://www.nme.com/news/foals/67009.

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, an Ivor Novello award for Best Song and they received five nods at the 2011 NME awards, winning Best Single for "Spanish Sahara." TLF was also voted The Fly magazine's album of the year in 2010.

The band will hit the road on a small club tour in the UK next month, look for them stateside in the spring. For more info visit http://www.foals.co.uk/ or https://www.facebook.com/Foalsforever.
