2016 is proving to be the most productive year yet for Basick's bearded Progressive Rock quartet FOES! Having already released the huge singles 'Beautiful Fiction' and 'The Everest' (plus free download 'Heike'), alongside playing multiple shows across the country it comes as awesome news that they'll be releasing their début album 'The Summit Lies Skyward' via Basick October 7th, 2016!
To tie in with today's album announcement, the band have released brand new single 'Young Sovereign', taken from the upcoming full-length. The track premiered on Alex Baker's Fresh Blood show on Kerrang! Radio last night, which you can listen back to if you missed it.
Of the new album, the band said:
"We couldn't be more proud that we're finally able to release this album. For us, it's the culmination of three years of hard work with FOES, and a year of solid writing. Every element of the record was created and considered with the mindset of making a debut we'd hope could stand the test of time. To then be able to take the finished product, and release it through one of our favourite UK labels is a huge privilege. We hope this album can mean as much to someone else as it does to us."
'The Summit Lies Skyward' will be released via Basick October 7th 2016 and is available for pre-order via Bandcamp now!
