Currently in the midst of a European tour, American indie darlings Fleet Foxes announced on June 20 a new round of tour dates this fall, including a US leg featuring New York-based indie band The Walkmen.
Both bands are hitting the road together on September 6 in Seattle, followed by gigs in Los Angeles, Austin, Tulsa, and Brooklyn.
Fleet Foxes has also added a slew of appearances at festivals throughout Europe this summer, including Way Out West Festival in Oslo on August 12, La Route du Rock Festival in Saint-Malo, France, on August 14, and Lowlands Festival in Biddinghuizen, Netherlands, on August 19. The band will tour the US from September 6 through 29 with The Walkmen, and then return to Europe and the UK from November 10 through December 2 for another round of performances in cities including Rome, Copenhagen, Vienna, Milan, and Leeds. The Walkmen are also currently touring Europe and the UK through September 3 before returning to the US.
Fleet Foxes released their second album, Helplessness Blues, last May via Sub Pop Records to critical acclaim. The Seattle-based band also received praise for their debut album, which peaked at number three on UK album charts and is cited as one of the best albums of 2008 by magazines Rolling Stone, Billboard, Paste, Spin, and Q.
The Walkmen released their sixth album, Lisbon, last year.
