Debut Album: "Torches" (2011)
Breakthrough Single/ Biggest Hit: "Pumped Up Kicks" (#18 UK 2011, #3 USA)
Foster The People, a rock band out of Los Angeles, formed in 2009 and had a breakthrough in a big way with the lead single from "Torches", "Pumped Up Kicks", which was one of the biggest rock hits of last year and then crossed over to pop very soon after. Three more singles have followed, led by "Helena Beat" and the new single "Don't Stop". They are already having a good 2012 as well. The second album should come soon, I'd bet.
