The hipsters of the world cried foul when Foster the People’s ‘Pumped Up Kicks’ hit the airwaves, but we’re sure the boys are not complaining!

Mark has come out to confirm that the band will be releasing a new single at the end of 2012, and a new album come 2013. He said:

“We’re touring through August and then, you know, we’re going to kind of cut that and just get into the studio and start working on our next record.

Hopefully we’ll have a song or two out by the end of the year. I’d like to get the album done pretty quickly but we’re not going to put something out until it’s ready. I’d say in 2013 it’ll be out.

I’d love to make a more analogue record and not so digital but at the same time still modern. I think it will be an evolution of the sound we’ve created so far.”

Well, after scoring one of 2011’s biggest hits, we’re sure there’s no pressure at all. Right boys?
