Fleet Foxes’ Australian tour will follow the enormous success of their sophomore record, ‘Helplessness Blues’ – released in April. Mojo gave the album a rare five stars, stating: “This album is destined to redraw the parameters, thanks to its sheer scale and detail, its recurring themes and imagery, and its creators’ refusal to settle for less than they could achieve.”
‘Helplessness Blues’ is out now on Sub Pop
