Foster The People

Since their unforgettable Splendour debut in 2011 these charming Californians have been on one hell of a ride; their album Torches sold nearly two million copies worldwide, reaching Number 1 on the ARIA charts along with their six-times platinum song of the year Pumped Up Kicks. Oh, and they also bagged three Grammy nominations!

Their much-anticipated second release, the Triple J Album of the Week awarded Supermodel just dropped, with Coming of Age and infectious new track Best Friend in high rotation.

With a pumped-up kit of new material, Splendour features among a string of massive performances for the band including Coachella, Glastonbury, Sasquatch, the Governor’s Ball and Fuji Rock.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
