[new music] Fleet Foxes - Helplessness Blues

New Record + Tour Dates!

There's the old adage that states good things come to those who wait, and waiting we've patiently done for the follow-up to Fleet Foxes fantastic self-titled '08 album. After a number of studio sessions and creative retreats, Robin Pecknold and Co. have announced the release date of Helplessness Blues as May 3. The 12-song LP was produced by Phil Ek and will release through Sub Pop (you can sample the title track below). The band will later embark on a US/EU tour, making a stop in Seattle at the Moore Theater on the album release date. Should be an amazing show - and if you want a better shot at getting tickets for these shows, go to the Fleet Foxes website (here) tomorrow (Tuesday the 1st) at 10am PST. You have the chance to take part in the limited ticket pre-sale for any of the North American shows listed below. You'll also be able to pre-order the new album along with your ticket if you want to.
