Oxford, England’s Foals will release third album Holy Fire in February of next year. The first single, “Inhaler”, debuted on NME today, demonstrating a further musical evolution for the enigmatic Brits.
There’s still a tinge of math rock, and Yannis Philippakis’ falsetto is in full effect, but you can tell they’re striving for more. The heavy riffage in the chorus might actually get the attention of radio programmers and fraternity brothers in the states. As Yannis told NME, “some of the grooves are quite stinky.”

Holy Fire will be released February 12th on Warner Bros.
