Next week will mark three years since Fleet Foxes released their sophomore studio
album, Helplessness Blues. For those hoping the next Fleet Foxes tour and album are
in the works, a new Facebook post on the band's
page makes it seem as if neither will be happening any time soon.
Robin Pecknold penned the post to give fans an update about the status of Fleet Foxes.
Pecknold appears to be focusing on campus life as a student at Columbia in NYC, but the
news is that he's "working on songs."
Here's the full text of the update:
For anyone who's curious, this is a short Fleet Foxes update - been a while! So, after
the last round of touring, I decided to go back to school. I never got an undergraduate
degree, and this felt like the right time to both see what that was about and to try
something new after a while in the touring / recording lifestyle. I moved to New York and
enrolled at Columbia, and I've mostly been doing that, but I'm working on songs and
for whatever happens next musically, even if it's down the line. Hope all is well out
