Foals have unveiled plans for a small London gig to celebrate the release of new album What Went Down.

The band will play Village Underground on 25 August, three days before their fourth album drops, and fans can apply for tickets via a ballot system on their website. Apply before 10am on 13 August to ensure you have a chance of purchasing tickets.

In a statement, the band explained: "We wanted to play a sweaty London gig around the album release. One where we finally get to play some more new songs." We're predicting a riotous show.

Last month, Foals revealed that they had turned down the opportunity to fill the special guest slot at Glastonbury, saying: "I’d been smoking too much. Our shows are so physical that I’d have been wheezing."

What Went Down will be released on 28 August.
