ROLLING BLACKOUTS COASTAL FEVER SHARE NEW VIDEO FOR “SISTER’S JEANS” TO CONCLUDE US TOUR SUPPORTING THEIR ACCLAIMED LP ‘HOPE DOWNS’

AUS and EURO dates kick off September 27th in Brisbane.

It’s been an incredible year for Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, who released their debut album Hope Downs to worldwide critical acclaim in amongst multiple international tours. In fact, they’ve just wrapped a hugely successful US tour, their second proper tour, where they stepped up venue sizes and still managed to sell out or pack out most of their dates, including sellouts in San Diego, San Francisco, Vancouver, Chicago, New York City, Colorado, and Philadelphia.

To celebrate their successful US tour, Rolling Blackouts C.F. have dropped the video for album track “Sister’s Jeans”. Directed by Riley Blakeway, the clip was.made possible thanks to The Levi’s® Music Prize. Another stellar addition to the Hope Downs collection, it follows clips for ‘Time In Common’, ‘An Air Conditioned Man’ and ‘Talking Straight’.



Fran Keaney describes how the track came together:

”The first lines ‘stand on the morning / head like a weathervane’ came immediately - that was the clue. Then was the slow process of finding the other pieces to fit. The song is a platonic love song. It offers no answers. Just says, ‘Hi, I see you.’”

The band’s sophisticated debut album has been embraced by lovers of their early EPs, Talk Tight and The French Press, and new fans alike. Since its release in June, it has been championed by triple j, Double J, FBi Radio, Pitchfork, The Guardian, Paste Magazine, NME, Rolling Stone US, BBC 6 Music, Stereogum, DIY Mag, and countless others.

Fleet Foxes Announce First Collection 2006 – 2009 To Be Released November 9, 2018

Special Edition to include the previously self-released EP The Fleet Foxes,  the band’s self-titled debut album, The Sun Giant EP, and a collection of b-sides and rarities

Limited Edition set also includes booklet of previously unseen photos lyrics, and artwork from the band’s early history

Fleet Foxes have announced a special limited-edition collection to mark the 10th anniversary of their debut album, entitled First Collection 2006 – 2009, to be released by Nonesuch in Europe and Sub Pop for the rest of the world on November 9, 2018. The package features content spanning the early days of Fleet Foxes’ career, including the self-titled full-length debut album on 12” vinyl, as well as the Sun Giant EP on 10” vinyl and the first vinyl releases of both the very limited-edition, previously only self-released The Fleet Foxes EP on 10” and B-sides & Rarities on 10”. See full tracklisting below.  In addition to its musical offerings, the release will feature a 32-page booklet including show flyers, lyrics, and artwork from the period. The special edition will also be released on CD and on all digital platforms. Pre-order the collection HERE.

With today’s announcement, the band has shared a trailer featuring archival footage. Watch the trailer HERE.

Fleet Foxes’ debut album made a tremendous impact on the international musical scene, topping numerous “best of” lists, including Rolling Stone’s 100 Best Albums of the 2000’s and Pitchfork’s 50 Best Albums of 2008, and earned the band Uncut’s inaugural Music Award Prize. Fleet Foxes is certified Gold in North America and Platinum in both the UK and Australia.

Here’s a statement from Robin Pecknold on this upcoming release: “Over the years many people have asked if we’d ever release our original demo EP in any form, or if the Sun Giant EP would ever have its own vinyl sleeve, or they would ask why the font on the cover of the Fleet Foxes LP was so large, or they would ask if there were any other recordings, b-sides or rarities from that time period, or if there were 32 pages worth of old photos and ephemera that they could take a look at, and they would often ask if all of these things could be packaged together, as a First Collection, four pieces of 12” and 10” vinyl, fresh pressings in freshly designed sleeves, packaged together in a beautiful duo-tone bookcloth box with a magnetic clasp hinge: to the thousands of you who have asked for this very weirdly specific thing, it comes out November 9th (with CD / Digital versions available as well), thanks for the good idea.
