The band responsible for the breakout hit “Pumped Up Kicks” has just released the music video for their latest single, “Houdini.”
Foster The People’s music video for “Houdini” tells a silly yet grim tale of the “show must go on.” When Foster The People are killed by a falling set piece at the start of their show, everything is done to make it seem as if nothing has happened.
The dudes are replaced by robots, green screen actors are brought in to make them “dance,” and other extreme measures are taken to ensure that the video gets made.
Foster The People kick off their Summer tour on May 29th and will make their debut at Bonnarro Arts and Music Festival which is like the Coachella of Tennessee.
After the band teamed up with the Beach Boys for a few performances at this years Grammys and will do it again during their summer tour. Foster the People and The Beach Boys’s own Cubbie Fink will team up in San Diego on May 25 at the opening act for the Beach Boys.
The rest of the tour are headlining dates for Foster The People with supporting acts from The Kooks, Tokyo Police Club, Mayer Hawthorne & The County and Kimbra (the female voice featured on Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know.”)
