Sub Pop announced this morning that Fleet Foxes frontman Robin Pecknold will perform a handful of West Coast shows this summer. Just like his Midwestern tour a few months back, Pecknold will be supporting Joanna Newsom, who is promoting her new album.
Some details are still unknown--like whether Pecknold will be performing all original solo material or Fleet Foxes' songs--but Pecknold has definitely signed on for one Seattle show. He'll play the Moore on August 4. (Portland, on the other hand, gets two shows on consecutive nights. I gotta wonder, where's your hometown love Robin?)
Sub Pop won't say much about what the ever-shy Pecknold has been up to lately. The press release only states, "Before and between tours, the FF frontman has been holed up in the studio with the band, making much progress on their second full length."
Here's the breakdown of Pecknold's tour:
