Foals formed after the dissolution of two bands, The Edmund Fitzgerald and Face Meets Grill. They formed Foals in 2004 and began performing live in 2004. After several members finished university, they got serious in 2007 and began recording their debut album. The disc, Antidotes, was produced by Dave Sitek of TV On The Radio. The album was an instant success in the UK debuting at #3 on the UK Albums chart. The album featured several hit singles including "Cassius" and "Balloons", which propelled the album to Gold status in the UK. Following an extensive Foals tour, the band returned to the studio in 2009 to produce their follow-up album.
Their sophomore set, Total Life Forever, was recorded in Sweden and produced by Luke Smith of Clor fame. The album debuted at #8 on the UK albums chart, spurred by single "Spanish Sahara". For their effort, Foals was nominated for the 2010 Mercury Prize. The album also earned five nominations at the NME Awards in 2011, for which they took home the Best Track trophy for "Spanish Sahara". The single was featured in an episode of the hit TV show, Entourage, and the album was propelled to Gold status, matching the success of their debut. Foals are currently recording new material in Australia with selected tour dates scheduled internationally.
