Fleet Foxes were on Saturday Night Live last weekend, playing two stunning songs. Listen to ‘Mykonos’ and ‘Blue Ridge Mountains’. Beautiful.

Furthermore.. With new single “Mykonos” all over the radio, and UK sales of their debut passing 150,000, Seattle’s finest have now been nominated for 2 BRIT AWARDS – Best INTERNATIONAL ALBUM and best INTERNATIONAL GROUP. In both categories Fleet Foxes are up against the same acts – AC/DC, Kings of Leon, The Killers and MGMT…  
2008 was the year of Fleet Foxes. The band’s self-titled debut was the NUMBER 1 ALBUM of the year in both the SUNDAY TIMES and MOJO, number 2 in Q and UNCUT, and number 3 in THE FLY. They were also the recipients of the inaugural Uncut Music Magazine Award.
2009 looks set to be the year for total crossover with album sales increasing week on week and Fleet Foxes all over the airwaves… Fleet Foxes make their much-anticipated UK return next month with 3 Roundhouse shows in February, all of which had sold out within a month of going on sale…
Sunday 22 February – LONDON – Roundhouse **(SOLD-OUT)**
Monday 23 February – LONDON – Roundhouse **(SOLD-OUT)**
Tuesday 24 February – LONDON – Roundhouse **(SOLD-OUT)**
