Foals have announced the details of their new LP, Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost -- Part 2. The disc arrives on October 18th, with the British band unveiling the lead single, “Black Bull." The new album follows up last March's Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost -- Part 1, which was recently shortlisted for England's prestigious Mercury Prize.

The new 10-track effort continues the thematic thread of the previous LP, with frontman Yannis Philippakis telling NME, “Part two is a heavier listen, the guitars are more emphasized and there’s some big riffs on it."

He added, "It’s a rock record and it definitely carries on the narrative from part one. Part one ended with a lot of fire and destructive imagery, part two is trying to respond to that: how you can continue in the wreckage and through the scorched earth?”

In addition to all standard formats, a special orange vinyl edition will be sold through indie retailers, while a picture disc meant to be added to the Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Collector’s Edition box set will also be available.

Foals hit the top of the Modern Rock airplay chart back in 2016 with "Mountain At My Gates," from their fourth album, What Went Down. The 2015 LP was the band's first to make inroads in the U.S.
