On a Tumblr post dated yesterday, Fleet Foxes' drummer J. Tillman announced he's leaving the band:
Farewell Fleet Fans and Friends. Back into the gaping maw of obscurity I go. Tokyo is my last show with the Foxes. Sorry if I was distant and obtuse if we ever met. Have fun.His new role at Sub Pop as Father John Misty--as reported recently by Chris Kornelis--appears to be taking him in other directions.
Here's hoping the foxes will remain friends. In the meantime, all you aspiring drummers out there in PDX (Robin Pecknold's new home base) and Seatown might want to brush up on those drum fills!
