Founded in 2009, Foster the People achieved success with the 2011 release of its debut album Torches, which has sold nearly two million albums and over nine million singles worldwide. Torches features the #1 hit single "Pumped Up Kicks," which was declared "the year's anthem" by SPIN. Foster the People garnered three Grammy nominations for its monumental debut, including Best Alternative Album, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for "Pumped Up Kicks" and Best Short Form Music Video for "Houdini." Supermodel was the second full-length record from Foster the People. Influenced by frontman Mark Foster's world travels and shifting perspective, the album was recorded in studios around the world and features fan favorites including "Coming of Age" and "Best Friend." The band's third and latest album Sacred Hearts Club, released in July 2017, is a 12-track effort that joyously flexes the group's creative powers, fusing neo-psychedelia, punk, funk, electronic, dance and hip hop. Foster points to the polarized global climate as being a catalyst towards a more thoughtful approach on the album, inspiring them to make something that was joyful and unifying. The band's current single "Sit Next To Me" was described as "pure shimmering pop" by the Associated Press, hit Top 5 at Alternative Radio and recently debuted on the Top 40 airplay chart.
