Foes announce The Summit Lies Skyward


Foes have announced their debut album The Summit Lies Skyward will launch on October 7.

The post-rock outfit last month previewed the forthcoming release with their video for song The Everest.

Foes say: “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 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. We hope this album can mean as much to someone else as it does to us.”

Next month Foes will also commence a co-headline tour with We Never Learned To Live – scheduled around their appearances at ArcTanGent, Throwfest and Fort Fest.

The Summit Lies Skyward can be pre-ordered via Basick Records.

FOES in Manchester live review

Former news desk member Christina joined the team in late 2015 and although her time working on online rock news was fairly brief, she made a huge impact by contributing close to 1500 stories. Christina also interviewed artists including Deftones frontman Chino Moreno and worked at the Download festival. In late 2016, Christina left rock journalism to pursue a career in current affairs. That's proved to be a massive success and in 2021, she was named Local Weekly Feature Writer of the Year at the Scottish Press Awards.
