Fleet Foxes performed “Fool’s Errand” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night in support of their critically acclaimed new album, Crack-Up, released earlier this year on 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.”Fleet Foxes recently concluded an extensive North American tour, selling out notable venues including Red Rocks Amphitheatre and the Hollywood Bowl; Billboard called the latter show a “triumphant return.” Upcoming, the band begins a European run at Iceland Airwaves on November 1 and Nonesuch releases a special edition 10” Fleet Foxes EP available exclusively at independent record stores on Record Store Day’s Black Friday, November 24.

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).
