Foals are set to play a gig celebrating 15 years of Transgressive Records at The Great Escape next month. The Oxford rockers are marking the anniversary of the influential label by headlining a show at Concorde 2 in Brighton on Friday May 10th.
Foals will be supported by Blaenavon and Boniface. Tickets for the show won’t be included in the weekend tickets for The Great Escape and will have to be purchased separately. The tickets are going on sale at 9am on Wednesday April 3rd.
Transgressive Records co-founder Toby L had this to say of the event, “The Great Escape is easily one of the world’s most progressive and exciting showcase platforms and since Transgressive always endeavours to unearth and support brand new artists that offer something to say, it felt entirely apt to kickstart a year of parties, special releases and other birthday related gimmickry in Brighton at an event we’ve supported since its inception.”
“It’s fair to say we wanted to do something pretty big to launch our birthday year, and I guess that’s how / why we’ve landed here… Foals have some incredible history with Concorde 2 and it seemed like an absolute dream to reunite them.”
The gig will come after Foals recently released their fifth studio album ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Part 1′ which peaked at number 2 on the British album charts.
