Foals are planning a nice break before they think about a fifth studio album.
Last year’s ‘What Went Down‘ LP needless to say is still taking up all their time, and all the success is set to culminate this summer with a headline performance at Reading/Leeds.
It’d be a surprise if that’s the end of the story for the album, but regardless frontman Yannis Philippakis has said the band will embrace a rest once the opportunity arises even if he’s not putting a timeframe on new writing sessions.
“We’ve only just put out a record so I think we’ve afforded to take some time,” he said. “I don’t think there’s a rush right now. We need to live life again, that’s always beneficial to making a record.”
“I think we need to take a break. It’s hard to predict. We might start writing again tomorrow.”
Yannis was speaking after ‘What Went Down’ picked up the Best Album trophy at last night’s (February 17th) NME Awards.
