Preparing to hit the road this spring for their extensive nationwide tour, Foster the People are certainly getting as "pumped up" as they can.

In anticipation of the major times ahead—which include slots at Coachella and Sasquatch music fests— the Los Angeles-based indie rock outfit debuted "Pumped Up Kicks" today, their first music video for a track off their recently released, eponymously titled EP. Lots of glowing live footage and steely, overxposured shots of the jeans-and-sunglasses-clad boys wandering the industrial wastelands of Los Angeles visually accompany the catchy, garage-pop anthem.
