Foals have shared a new animated video for their song “Like Lightning,” off their recent album Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 2. The video was written and directed by the French animator Virginie Kypriotis and was premiered by Music Declares Emergency, an organization which promotes changes to improve environmental practice across the UK music industry.

Foals are one of the most prominent supporters of Music Declares Emergency, which was founded in 2019 by a group of artists, music industry professionals and members of the leading environmental charity Julie’s Bicycle. In July, MDE declared a Climate and Ecology Emergency, which attracted thousands of signatures from all sectors of the UK music industry. Foals are one of MDE’s numerous high profile supporters, alongside artists including The 1975, Radiohead, Robyn and Massive Attack.

The band recently confirm an extensive co-headlining tour of North America, in support of their most recent album Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 2, with Local Natives. The tour will stop in cities including Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Detroit, and Chicago (full dates below) and Local Natives will join them on the majority of these dates.
