We're pumped up that "Torches" from Foster The People turns 10 today!

Foster the People

Ten years ago today, Foster The Peoplereleased their Grammy-nominated debut album "Torches". The band parlayed the popularity of frontman Mark Foster's song "Pumped Up Kicks" into landing a record deal. The song proved to be a sleeper hit, helping to launch their career. Elton John became a huge fan saying that "Torches" was one of his favorites and one of the best albums of 2011.
