Fleet Foxes Add New Dates to Spring 2018 Tour, Headlining Pitchfork Festival










Fleet Foxes have added dates to their spring North American tour, including a coveted headline slot at the renowned Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago and a Shaky Knees side performance in Atlanta. Newly announced headline stops include Cincinnati’s Taft Theatre, Cleveland’s Agora Theatre, and Montreal’s Corona Theatre; tickets for these go on sale Friday, March 16. The extensive tour is currently underway and features festival plays at Coachella, Boston Calling, and Shaky Knees’ main stage as well as two nights at Nashville’s legendary Ryman Auditorium, the first of which has officially sold out; tickets are still available for the second. The full itinerary is below, with new dates in bold.
Last week, Fleet Foxes announced a special edition 7” featuring a unique recording of “Crack-Up” performed with renowned Icelandic women’s choir Graduale Nobli at Harpa Concert Hall in Reykjavik as well as an intimate version of “In The Morning” recorded live at the 2017 Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland. The 7” will be available on Record Store Day, April 21, 2018
These spring dates come on the heels of an exceptional 2017. Following their highly anticipated return from a six-year hiatus, Fleet Foxes released an internationally beloved full-length album, Crack Up; sold out notable venues including Red Rocks Amphitheatre and the Hollywood Bowl; performed on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert as well as a CBS This Morning, and earned year-end recognition from Esquire, Consequence of Sound, Paste, Uproxx, Vulture, and more.

On Saturday night at the Hollywood Bowl, Robin Pecknold was as powerful as any performer who’s ever played the Bowl’s stage. He was a flash of folk and light and feeling. He was gentleness masked in fury, or maybe the other way around. Whichever it is, he sure as hell won’t say.” – Uproxx
“Triumphant Return… Despite the large venue, Pecknold’s vocals were able to reach those in the far back, highlighted by the band’s impressive musicianship… It all coalesced to create a rich, ethereal setting.” – Billboard
“The culmination of a two-hour high-wire act full of intricate, often breathtaking music. Judging by the flushed, smiling faces of the faithful as they file questly out, one that’s been worth the six-year wait.”
– Q Magazine
“The show felt like it had disregarded the laws of physics, with each perfect transition between songs threading time together, making you feel like there was no such thing as an end.” – Seattle Weekly
“They brought with them everything fans love about Fleet Foxes: layered harmonies shepherded by Robin Pecknold’s still-incredible voice, pastoral lyrics, and an almost religious-seeming intensity that made the Crystal feel like a cathedral.” – Portland Mercury
“Bigger and better after hiatus.” – Washington Post
Tuesday night’s show showcased the immense talent of everyone involved in the group for a truly engaging live experience.” – New York Daily News
“The six-year wait seemed almost worth it for the chance to spend a short while in the company of Pecknold once again.” – Consequence of Sound
“Pecknold’s ultra-pure voice and timeless, picturesque lyrics soared through the hall all night, raising goosebumps at the peak moments in beloved “oldies” like “Ragged Wood,” “He Doesn’t Know Why,” “Helplessness Blues” and especially “Mykonos.” – Las Vegas 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).
