SET TO PERFORM ON THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH JAMES CORDEN ON JULY 24
BAND ON TOUR NOW
“It’s a wild feeling releasing something that’s been living inside the safe corridors of my heart for the last few years. Like releasing a bird that has finally earned its right to fly. I think it’s important for you to know we made this record with joy and musical freedom. Any time the idea of past expectations, pressure to perform, or commerce came into the creative picture, we tried our best to push it out and lock the door.
We live in a trying time right now. Racism, sexism, classism, homophobia, and religious persecution are more rampant than ever. This record was made in defiance against those cancerous ideas. Hopefully it makes you feel as it made us feel when we were working on it – that life is beautiful. And love will always be bigger than politics.”
In celebration of the new album, which Newsday says “is well crafted from start to finish,” the band will perform “Sit Next To Me” on The Late Late Show with James Corden on Monday, July 24. Fans can tune in to CBS at12:37a.m. / 11:37p.m. ct to catch the performance. Additionally, the band is set to play an exclusive “Sacred Hearts Club” live set at Club Bahia in Los Angeles on Tuesday, July 25.
Foster the People are currently on tour and will appear at many major festivals throughout the summer and fall including Lollapalooza, Bumbershoot Festival and The Meadows Music & Arts Festival. The band will also play a full set of headline shows, stopping in major markets including Denver, Boston and Atlanta before wrapping with an appearance at the Austin City Limits music festival on October 13.
