Fleet Foxes have announced a run of tour dates in 2018 throughout the Southern part of the US including a return to Nashville’s legendary Ryman Auditorium. Tickets are on sale Friday, December 9 at 10:00 AM Local Time, all tour dates are listed below and a tour admat can be found here. Fleet Foxes are preparing to conclude a massive year, including sold-out shows at Hollywood Bowl, Red Rocks Amphitheatre and multi night sellouts in Seattle, New York and more. The band’s latest album Crack-Up and select songs is being celebrated  on the Best of 2017 lists including EsquireConsequence of SoundPasteUproxxVulture and others.

Fleet Foxes released Crack-Up on June 16, 2017 via Nonesuch Records. Following a six-year hiatus, the band earned international praise for what the New York Times called ”a defiant artistic statement, an album that dares to feel important.”” This year, Fleet Foxes stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert twice performing “Third of May” and then “Fool’s Errand”  as well as a full session on CBS This Morning. The band provided a look at the experience, behind (and on) stage, with special guests The Westerlies. Watch the full video by Sean Pecknold.

Fleet Foxes recently took part in Record Store Day’s Black Friday, releasing a special edition 10” EP exclusively through independent record stores. The EP features four songs, thoughtfully selected from a WFUV session recorded at the historic Electric Lady Studio in New York on June 13, 2017, days before the band’s new album, Crack-Up, was released.

“Crack-Up is a defiant artistic statement, an album that dares to feel important.”- New York Times

“The band’s third album is their most complex and compelling to date. Robin Pecknold’s songwriting retreats inward while around him dense folk compositions rise and fall on a massive scale.” – Pitchfork  (Best New Music)

“Rewarding, involving and meticulous, Crack-Up has been well worth the wait.” – AP

 “A rich, ideas-driven record which pulls off a pretty unlikely feat: infusing Fleet Foxes’ music with the same sense of transcendence and beauty that they managed the first time, now delivered with an added sense of expansive musical ambition.  Confirms that rarest of achievements: a group somehow hanging on to the essence of who they are, while pushing their art into thrillingly unforeseen places.’ – Q Magazine

“Astonishing.  Crack-Up may be the most anticipated release of the year, a welcome return.  Ambitious, mature, meticulous.” – Uncut

“Adventurous, excellent” – Rolling Stone

“Likely to be the most remarkable album you will hear this year… the return of one of the most original bands of this century.” – Times (London)

“Crack-Up is enveloping enough to get lost in… For every contained and elegantly pretty ballad like “Kept Woman,” there’s a byzantine engine of ambition like the title track, which closes Crack-Up with a burst of energy worthy of its title.” – NPR

“The Seattle-formed indie-folk pick up where they left off with pensive balladry  and life affirming anthems loaded with harmonies that’d make Crosby, Stills & Nash jealous.” – Entertainment Weekly

About Fleet Foxes

Crack-Up comes six years after the 2011 release of Helplessness Blues and nearly a decade since the band’s 2008 self-titled debut. All eleven of the songs on Crack-Up were written by Robin Pecknold. The album was co-produced by Pecknold and Skyler Skjelset, his longtime bandmate, collaborator, and childhood friend.

Fleet Foxes’ self-titled debut made a profound impact on the international musical landscape, earning them Uncut’s first ever Music Award Prize, and topping numerous “Best of” lists, including Rolling Stone’s 100 Best Albums of the 2000’s and Pitchfork’s 50 Best Albums of 2008. Fleet Foxes is certified Gold in North America and Platinum in both the UK and Australia. The follow-up album Helplessness Blues was met with the same critical praise as its predecessor (MOJO five stars, Rolling Stone four stars, Pitchfork Best New Music); that album debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200, went Gold in the UK, and earned the band a GRAMMY nomination.

Fleet Foxes is Robin Pecknold (vocals, multi-instrumentalist), Skyler Skjelset (multi-instrumentalist, vocals), Casey Wescott (multi-instrumentalist, vocals), Christian Wargo (multi-instrumentalist, vocals), and Morgan Henderson (multi-instrumentalist).
