Foals kicked off the month of October with a bang, by teasing a headline UK tour next year.

Now, the Oxfordshire rockers have announced their new dates, which includes a show at London Olympia on Saturday 2 May 2020.

The dates, which will no doubt support their Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Part 2 album, follows the Mercury-nominated Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Part 1.

The Exits band - who consist of frontman Yannis Philippakis, drummer and percussionist Jack Bevan, rhythm guitarist Jimmy Smith and keyboardist Edwin Congreave - had kept very tight-lipped about the dates beforehand only giving the names of five cities they took place in.
