The band’s lineup is frontman Mark Foster, Mark Pontius and Cubbie Fink and all are featured in the new video. MTV News takes a look at the narrative:
Just seconds into the clip directed by Daniels (The Shins, Chromeo), a lighting rig crushes the band’s members the day before a major gig. That doesn’t wash with a mysterious businessman, who shows up on set determined to see that the concert goes off, no matter what. His minions slap corsets on the boys and lash them to men in black body suits who stand behind them and manipulate their arms and heads as if the pop trio were human marionettes.
The band embarks on a summer tour which kicks off on May 29,2012 at Rumsey Playfield in Central Park in New York City. Details and itinerary at fosterthepeople.com.
