Fleet Foxes have announced four special shows at select intimate theaters in the Pacific Northwest May 15-19.  These performances will be the first US shows in six years and include dates at Missoula’s The Wilma, Spokane’s Knitting Factory, Portland’s Crystal Ballroom and a hometown show at Seattle’s Showbox at the Market.  Crack-Up, the band’s long awaited, third album will be released June 16 via Nonesuch Records.  Crack-Up comes six years after the 2011 release of Helplessness Blues and nearly a decade since the band’s 2008 self-titled debut. 

Fleet Foxes released first single, “Third of May / Ōdaigahara,” earlier this month to critical acclaim. Previously announced US, UK, European and Australian tour dates detailed below.

"Third of May / Ōdaigahara” Lyric Video
Fleet Foxes - Third of May / Ōdaigahara (Lyric Video)
“On ‘Third of May / Ōdaigahara,’ Fleet Foxes show that they can open themselves to an expanding world without losing themselves in the process.” - Pitchfork 

"A sprawling, nearly nine-minute track, it features piano, electric twelve-string guitar, string quartet, and, of course, Fleet Foxes’ pristine harmonies." - Consequence of Sound
"The track, in typical Foxes fashion, begins as a warm and inviting acoustic guitar- and piano-driven jaunt before taking a turn into expansive, even psychedelic territory." - Paste
"It sounds like this album is gonna be worth the wait." - Brooklyn Vegan
