Foster the People Releases 'Supermodel'
Foster The People's Supermodel is out now on Columbia Records. The band will celebrate Supermodel with a special release day performance of hit single "Coming of Age" on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon." Check out the performance tonight at 11:35PM ET/10:35PM CT on NBC.
Leading up to the release of Supermodel, the band debuted a series of videos giving fans an intimate and in-depth look at the album. The most recent video, Supermodel (IV), which explores the making of the album, premiered yesterday via FILTER.
First single "Coming of Age" is Top 5 at Alternative and AAA radio and has been collecting early critical acclaim, with Rolling Stone applauding the song's "bright guitar riffs, layered vocals and snappy handclaps" and Billboard noting, "Frontman Mark Foster sounds casually assured throughout, bolstered by soulful backing vocals and a smooth ebb and flow that keeps the tune surging."
Foster the People kicked off the release of Supermodel with a special sold-out show at Brooklyn, NY's Music Hall of Williamsburg. The show, which sold out in just minutes and was broadcast live on SiriusXM's Alt Nation, follows the band's performance for a crowd of more than 25,000 in Butler Park at last week's annual SXSW Music Festival in Austin, TX.
Additionally, the band is about to embark on a world tour. Following shows in Toronto, London and Paris this month, the tour will continue in April and include festival performances at Coachella, Governors Ball, JazzFest, Rock Werchter and Sasquatch as well as headline dates around the globe (please see below for full tour routing).
