After a very successful 2008 in which the band's debut album landed in several Top 10 lists (including being #6 on Paste's Top 50), Fleet Foxes are going on tour this Summer. They will be hitting up numerous festivals in the process, including Newport Folk, Lollapalooza, All Points West and Sasquatch!.
In addition to touring, the Foxes also released the Mykonos 7" on May 5. The B-side of the record includes a reworking of a traditional folk song first made popular by Steeleye Span, "False Knight on the Road."
