I’ve been excited to see what else Foster The People could pump out ever since I first heard “Pumped Up Kicks”. Last month they teased us with the 3 song Pumped Up Kicks EP. They finally announced that they have a debut album on the way.

On May 24th the bands debut album, Torches, will be released via Columbia Records/StarTime Intl. The band will begin touring this month, so fans should be able to hear some songs off the album.

Can’t wait to see what other pop rock gems that these guys are able to deliver. I wish I could catch them in NYC, but hopefully they will come back at a better date for me. Check out their current tour dates after the jump:
