Foster the People at Bumbershoot 2017, Seattle, on Friday.
The pop band formed in Los Angeles, California in 2009. It consists of lead vocalist Mark Foster, lead guitarist Sean Cimino, keyboardist Isom Innis, and drummer Mark Pontius.
Foster founded the band after spending several years in Los Angeles working as a commercial jingle writer. The group’s song “Pumped Up Kicks” became a viral success in 2010. In 2011 the band released their debut album Torches. “Pumped Up Kicks” became a hit on commercial radio and eventually reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100.
The record also featured the singles “Helena Beat” and “Don’t Stop (Color on the Walls)”. The group received three Grammy Award nominations for Torches and “Pumped Up Kicks”.
Foster the People released their second album, Supermodel, in March 2014. The band released its third studio album, Sacred Hearts Club, earlier this year.
