FOALS – Mountain At My Gates
Immediately after touring around their 2013 breakthrough LP Holy Fire, the band recorded the ferocious new album with James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, Florence + The Machine) in the same Provence village where, 127 years ago, Vincent Van Gogh was hospitalized in a psychiatric ward after slicing off his ear.
The band recently received the award for “Best Act in the World” at the 2015 Q Awards as well.
