Fleet Foxes Detail New Album + Free Download & Tour Dates

Fleet Foxes - Helplessness Blues by subpop

It seems like ages since the Fleet Foxes released their self-titled debut record...well I guess it was 2008. A band can afford to take an approximate three year recording and touring hiatus after dropping such a perfect album. The wait is over as the Foxes just announced the release of their sophomore record, Helplessness Blues which comes to us on May 3rd (I know...a long wait.)
In order to sufficiently whet our musical appetites, enjoy the new title track, "Helplessness Blues" above. This sounds like a promising start.

In addition, the band have announced a slew of North American and European tour dates beginning in April. Full dates after the jump.
