Fleet Foxes join End of the Road Festival

fleet-foxes

Fleet Foxes is an indie folk band which formed in Seattle, Washington, United States in 2006. The band consists of Robin Pecknold (vocals, guitar), Skyler Skjelset (guitar), Christian Wargo (bass, guitar, vocals), Casey Wescott (keyboards, vocals) and J. Tillman (drums, vocals). They are signed to the labels Sub Pop and Bella Union.

Fleet Foxes released the six-track Fleet Foxes EP in 2006, a five-track EP, Sun Giant on April 8, 2008, and their debut full-length self-titled album, Fleet Foxes on June 3, 2008. It was given 4 stars by Rolling Stone, and compared to the likes of The Beach Boys, Animal Collective, and Crosby, Stills & Nash and Psycho Karaoke from Australia. On June 6, 2008, they received a 9.0 out of 10 in a review by Pitchfork for their self-titled LP, and on December 19th, the Sun Giant Ep and the self titled LP together shared the title of Pitchfork’s #1 album(s) of 2008.

The quintet describe their music as “baroque harmonic pop jams.” They have played at major venues such as the Bumbershoot Music Festival in Seattle, Washington, South by Southwest music festival in Austin, Texas and Sasquatch! Music Festival at the Gorge Amphitheatre in May 2008. On June 24, 2008, Fleet Foxes went #1 on the CMJ Radio 200 Chart.
Fleet Foxes and Explosions in the Sky have been confirmed for headline slots at the End of the Road Festival 2009, with other confirmations including Okkervil River, Magnolia Electric Co, The Broken Family Band, The Acorn, The Dodos and Mumford and Sons.

Little need be said here about Fleet Foxes except that it’s hard to think of a better place to see them play than the leafy Garden Stage, with a glass of local cider and a peacock meandering about nearby. They’ll be headlining on the Saturday, with Explosions in the Sky taking the Friday slot.
