Foster The People announce new album, tour

, Staff

Foster The People have revealed plans for a spring tour in support of their highly anticipated new album, Supermodel. The rock favorites will hit Massachusetts for a night at the House of Blues in Boston on Friday, May 9. Tickets for the show, which will also feature opener St. Lucia, will go on sale Friday at noon through Live Nation for $39.50 and $55.

Supermodel, Foster The People’s sophomore release and follow-up to their 2011 debut album Torches, will hit stores on March 18. Produced by Paul Epworth (Adele, Florence and the Machine) the album was recorded in various locations around the world. The process began when frontman Mark Foster and Epworth set up a writing studio in a riad in Essaouira, Morocco at the end of 2012.

“We didn’t have any rules. We just created as much as we could in seven days,” explained Foster in a press release. “And in the spirit of wanderlust and discovery we ended up stumbling on the musical identity of what this record was going to feel like.”

Fans can get a taste of Supermodel with lead single “Coming Of Age”, which is streaming below.
