Fleet Foxes' Robin Pecknold has spilled the beans on the returning band's live plans for 2017.

"Australia in May, EU in July, US Aug, US October, EU November," writes Pecknold in response to a question ("Is it European tour around summer then American come fall?") on the above post.

So far Fleet Foxes aren't penned in for many live appearances - just Bilbao BBK in Spain next summer - but there are plenty more dates TBC by the looks of things.

Last month the band revealed that their long-awaited new record is “alllllmost done”, so hopefully they can slot a release in somewhere in the coming months. Perhaps pre-May before they begin gallivanting across the planet?

Fleet Foxes last released an album five years ago - 2011's Helplessness Blues.
