Tickets for Fleet Foxes 2018 concerts go on sale December 9th at 10 a.m. local time. Additional information is available on the band’s website. Fleet Foxes spent much of 2017 on the road in support of Crack Up, wrapping an extensive North American trek in October.
Released in June, Crack-Up marked Fleet Foxes’ third album and first since 2011’s Helplessness Blues. In an interview with Rolling Stone, singer Robin Pecknold explained that in between albums he pursued an undergraduate degree at Columbia University, took up surfing and even hiked to base camp at Mount Everest. While he occasionally wrote songs, it took several years to find the songwriting spark that eventually led to Crack-Up.
“Having done this for a long time, we’re trying to find new ways to keep it interesting,” he said of the band’s approach to Crack-Up. “All good songwriting is about contrast – setting up an expectation and subverting it.”
