The band releases their first new track since 2014 via BitTorrent. Listen up.

Four years after their debut LP, Torches, Foster The People still defies easy categorization: indie pop that bristles with intelligence, curiosity, and the occasional weaponized hook. 2014’s Supermodel saw the band exploring new territory: acoustic, psychedelic, and electric.  Today, they’re sharing the previously unreleased “The Unforseeable Fate of Mr. Jones” with fans exclusively on BitTorrent Bundle.

3 years ago today, the world lost one of its greatest modern show jumpers, Hickstead, to an unfortunate and unforseeable tragedy. An international favourite, he turned heads wherever he went and inspired any, and all, who watched him go. There’s no doubt that he loved, and was loved by, everyone who knew him. Here’s to you, Hickstead. We miss you, we love you, and we will never forget you! ‪

"We are aiming for the release of our expanded color wheel on June 8th.”

Trying not to be No Fun Bot here, but rather just offering a very gentle reminder that this is by no means a hard-set, guaranteed date.  There may likely be unforseeable delays.  This is also one of the few times, if not the first, that we have ANY sort of ETA on a site-changing mechanic.  Which makes me wonder if this is a test of how well the community will handle it.

Feel free to celebrate and revel, to buy up and plan those nests, just please, by all that is good and wholesome in this world do not get angry if the date is changed.

Just out of curiosity, why does Mac's success offend you so much? You're entitled to your opinion of course, but I just can't think of anything he does or has done to warrant being so hated.

Offend me? No, he doesn’t do that. Maybe if he did offend me, I would at least find him interesting. FYI, the post I made was hyperbole. I’m really not going to kill myself because he sold a lot of records last week. It’s just that……he’s just not that good. He’s vanilla (no pun intended) as hell. There are quite a few rappers out there that are far better than him at spitting on the mic but they have never seen #1 and/or they never will. THAT’S a shame. I respect him for his grind (an independent artist going #1 that wasn’t a previously known commodity is a hell of an achievement) but I can’t stand his music. 

I’m sure he appreciates you sticking up for him though.
