Published May 17, 2011Los Angeles-based pop-rockin' indie crew Foster the People only formed in late 2009, but thanks to the wild, viral success of their anthemic hit "Pumped Up Kicks," they have quickly snagged buzzed-about band status. Now, they will finally deliver on the hype with the release of their debut album Torches, which can be streamed in full now.
After the buzz of "Pumped Up Kicks," Foster the People landed a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, as well as high-profile slots at Coachella and SXSW. The song was featured on a self-titled EP earlier this year alongside the catchy gems "Helena Beat" and "Houdini." Now with Torches, the trio of Mark Foster, Mark Pontius and Cubbie Fink attempt to set the bar even higher.
Torches will be released on May 24 via Columbia/StarTime International. The full album can be streamed below until May 23 and can be purchased here.
