Multi-instrumentalists and folk poppers Freelance Whales begin its spring tour in April, accompanied by indie pop quartet Foals. Also joining the two for select dates is five-piece dance pop group The Naked And Famous.



The Queens-based Freelance Whales released its debut EP, Weathervanes (Frenchkiss) last year, with a video for “Enzymes” being released earlier this month. Co-headliner Foals released its second studio album, Total Life Forever (Sub Pop) in spring 2010, and is currently finishing a tour throughout Australia and Japan.



The upcoming tour starts in Vancouver, with dates across the U.S. and Canada through early May.
