Indie folkers return to the big stage with third album Crack Up, after a six year hiatus

Fleet Foxes have announced UK shows for November, with presale tickets available Mon 19 Jun at 10am.

The indie folk band from Seattle are gearing up for the release of third album Crack Up, their first since 2011's Helplessness Blues. The band took a hiatus after touring that album, during which frontman Robin Pecknold relocated to New York City and studied at Columbia University, and former drummer Josh Tillman reinvented himself as outspoken superstar Father John Misty.

The shows will take the band, known for their jaw-dropping harmonies, to Manchester's O2 Apollo on Thu Nov 23, and London's O2 Brixton Academy on Sun 26 Nov.

The group will also headline Latitude Festival this July, bringing cuts from the new album such as 'Third of May' and 'Fool's Errand' to the main stage, as well as old favourites like 'White Winter Hymnal', 'He Doesn't Know Why', 'Mykonos' and 'Montezuma'.

Fleet Foxes UK tour dates 2017:

Thu 23 Nov – O2 Apollo, Manchester
Sun 26 Nov – O2 Brixton Academy, London

Presale tickets for Fleet Foxes are available on Mon 19 Jun at 10am. Tickets go on general sale Wednesday 21 Jun at 10am.
