Saskatoon band Friends of Foes announced today that they’ll be releasing a new EP entitled Faults on February 12, 2016. Following the band’s 2013 debut release Chronophobic and subsequent 2014 single "Winter,” Faults was recorded by long-time collaborator Jordan Smith. FOF guitarist Matt Stinn teamed up with Smith to co-produce the album. Recording of the EP was made possible thanks to a grant from Creative Saskatchewan.

The announcement of Faults was accompanied by an album teaser video made by Saskatoon filmmaker Morgan Carter. Watch the video here:

Faults marks a turning point in the maturity of the band's writing and lyrical content, as well as a shift from chimey indie-pop to a fuller and more atmospheric sound. Faults is set for release worldwide in February of next year, with subsequent Canadian tour dates to follow.

Hailing from the heart of the Saskatchewan prairies, Friends of Foes hit their listeners with a roaring wall of sonic talent. From soft, gentle melodies to full on audio assaults, the heavy drum lines and harmony-laden choruses mix musical finesse with raw power. Having already shared the stage with some of Canada's best bands, topping numerous "Best Of" lists with their debut Chronophobic, and drawing comparisons to Death Cab for Cutie and Stars, Friends of Foes is a relentlessly hard working band dead set on carving a name for themselves in the Canadian music scene through endless touring and a powerful press presence.
