We couldn’t be more excited to welcome Fool’s Gold to the ORG Music family!
They just premiered the official music video for their new single “I’m in Love” at Interview Magazine, along with announcing their new album Flying Lessons, out on April 18th (Record Store Day) on ORG Music. Flying Lessons is the follow-up album to 2011’s Leave No Trace, which saw a multitude of positive reviews from sources such as Pitchfork, Consequence of Sound, SPIN, and NPR. Fool’s Gold has spent much of the past few years on the road, including appearances at Glastonbury, Reading, Leeds, and ACL Fest, and highlighted by a 2012 supporting stint with the Red Hot Chili Peppers in arenas across the UK as well as in Tel Aviv for one of the largest concerts in Israel’s history. In 2013, the band eased out of a long, demanding tour schedule to focus on writing new material. With five years of experience behind them, this was the perfect opportunity to further refine the band’s identity and songwriting.
Lead singer and co-founder Luke Top says, “The release of Flying Lessons is a huge deal for us. It encompasses everything we’ve been about for the last 7+ years, both musically and emotionally. It is the culmination of countless hours of travel, gigs, success, failure, darkness, joy, and the stubborn insistence to move forward and create our best work to date.”
Flying Lessons will first be available for Record Store Day with an exclusive orange color vinyl pressing, limited to 1,000 copies worldwide, and includes a digital album download with two bonus tracks. The album will see its wide release for digital and CD formats on May 19th. Album pre-orders are available now at the band’s webstore, and include instant downloads of “I’m In Love”. Following a European tour in late April, Fool’s Gold will celebrate the release of their new album with shows at The Troubadour in Los Angeles on May 14th and the Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco on May 27th.
