Fool’s Gold was originally formed in Los Angeles by Lewis Pesacov and Luke Top as a large open-ended collective, at times ranging between 12-15 members. After many tours following the release of their self-titled debut album (2009), the once sizable collective organically evolved into a tight-knit five-member “Band”. Confident, focused and much more personal, this new line-up allowed for the dynamic of the group to blossom, redefining and sculpting their sound for the sophomore LP: Leave No Trace.
Fool’s Gold’s debut record garnered them a record of the year nomination from NPR, a Best Record of 2009 honorable mention at Pitchfork and was in the top 50 of UNCUT’s “Best Albums” of the year. Last year their fiery live shows earned them invitations to both The Hollywood Bowl and The Summerstage in Central Park NYC. In 2011 they will be headline a US and European tour that will include, amongst many others, stops at The Glastonbury, ACL and Solidays Festivals.
