Foals have been rumoured to appear at Glastonbury this summer after they revealed today that they will be releasing two albums this year.

The band shared a teaser video on social media this morning, and confirmed the album will be titled “Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost”.

Later in the day, NME reported that Foals had confirmed this will be two albums, rather than one in two parts.

In the hours after the announcement, Foals fans took to social media with the prediction that a Glastonbury slot could also be in store.

Sky Bet are currently offering 33/1 odds for Foals to headline at the festival this June. The Cure are currently favourites at 1/3, whilst an Oasis reunion is priced at 18/1.

Foals last played at Glasto in 2016, when the Telegraph’s review of their Pyramid Stage set predicted: “one day they will headline”.

The tour page on Foals’ website currently shows a gap over the weekend of Glastonbury, despite showing they will appear at festivals in Croatia and The Netherlands the weekends before and after.

Foals have also been confirmed to be playing at Germany’s Rock am Ring and Rock im Park earlier in June, alongside Tool, Slipknot, and Slayer.

It was confirmed in November that Stormzy would headline Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage on Friday night, the only headline act that has been announced so far.

Stormzy was already rumoured to be playing the festival after previous hints from Emily Eavis and an Instagram story posted by the artist last summer.

The first batch of tickets for Glastonbury 2019 sold out in just 29 minutes back in October, with a resale set to take place in April.

This year, Glasto is set to take place from Wednesday 26th to Sunday 30th June.

Organisers have previously spoken of plans to ban plastic bottles at Glastonbury, starting from this summer.
