27 August 2019 FOALS
Foals will again visit Ukraine with a big solo concert!
Foals did not produce new releases for about four years – they were fully engaged with a tour in support of their latest record What Went Down. Afterwards, Foals took a one-year break. During this period bass player Walter Gervas abandoned the band. His decision prompted the group to alter their approach to creating and selecting songs. As a result, this year you will hear even two full-fledged albums.
According to front man Yannis Philippakis, Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost will have a different mood. He says that the first part will be grungier and dancelike, which is obvious in the first singles Exits and On The Luna. The second part is a ‘solid work’ echoing the clips What Went Down, Inhaler and Providence.
31 August 2019 LATEXFAUNA
Imagine how cool it is to enjoy emotion-driven tunes by Latexfauna while sipping your favorite summer cocktail. "We invite everyone to join us in saying goodbye to summer, as you imbibe your drinks and dance on the sand on a Saturday night lit by rays of the setting sun," the musicians say.
The band’s bold lyrics are based around psychedelic plots that pull the strings of Subconscious. Their compositions sound utterly different from what you have heard before.
Previously, LATEXFAUNA performed three times at the Atlas Club to the sold-out audience. A big bonus will be a following club party – free for all those who have bought tickets for the LATEXFAUNA concert.
