Foster The People burst
Foster The People burst onto the indie scene with their massively popular and infectiously catchy single ‘Pumped Up Kicks’, which led them to take home a Billboard Music Award for Top Rock Song as well as Grammy, BRIT, NME and Teen Choice Award nominations.
The band was founded by Mark Foster in Los Angeles in 2009. The group achieved success with the 2011 release of their debut album Torches, which has sold nearly two million albums and over ten million singles worldwide. Torches features the #1 hit single “Pumped Up Kicks,” which was declared “the year’s anthem” by SPIN, and also spawned the chart topping singles “Don’t Stop (Color On The Walls),” “Houdini,” and “Helena Beat.” Foster the People garnered three Grammy nominations for their monumental debut, including Best Alternative Album, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Pumped Up Kicks” and Best Short Form Music Video for “Houdini.”
Since then they have been filling dance-floors worldwide with headline tours and slots at some of the biggest international festivals including Lollapalooza, Glastonbury and Coachella.

Foster the People’s sophomore album, Supermodel, was released on March 18th, 2014. Produced by Paul Epworth and recorded in various locations around the world, the album reached number three on the U.S. album chart. Two singles, “Coming of Age” and “Best Friend”, hit the Top Ten of the alternative chart.
In July 2017, they delivered the full-length Sacred Hearts Club, which found them exploring a funky, electronic, ’80s-style R&B vibe. Produced by Foster and keyboardist Isom Innis along with Josh Abraham, Lars Stalfors, and Oligee, the album featured the singles “Loyal Like Sid & Nancy” and “Sit Next to Me.”
