Fleet Foxes Release Events


On May 3rd, Fleet Foxes’ stunning second album, Helplessness Blues is finally available. People who write articles for popular magazines seem to like it: SPIN 9/10, MOJO 5 stars, Rolling Stone 4 stars…. We hope you love it too. The CD and Double-LP come with a fold-out poster and the vinyl has a download code for a high quality mp3 version of the album.

A dizzying number of our nation’s finest independent record stores are celebrating the release of Fleet Foxes’ Helplessness Blues with midnight sales, listening parties and special giveaways. Each of these stores has a single copy of Helplessness Blues on white vinyl (one of only 200 pressed), as well as silk-screened posters, the sold-out Record Store Day 12-inch single, and some Sub Pop goodies.
