Fleet Foxes has released the album track “Third of May / Ōdaigahara,” a nearly nine-minute epic powered by piano and electric twelve-string guitar, string quartet, and the group's trademark sparkling harmonies.

Fleet Foxes: Reminiscent of what Folk-rock music was during its heyday, the guys from Fleet Foxes are quickly reviving an entire genre. Fleet Foxes tour dates are currently scheduled internationally throughout Summer, 2011 in support of their upcoming sophomore effort, "Helplessness Blues."

The Seattle based group began as a duo when Robin Pecknold and Skyler Skelset met in high school. They quickly formed a bond over their musical idols, Bob Dylan and Neil Young, and sought to create original music from that generation's mold. With Pecknold on vocals and Skelset on guitar, the duo quickly began to garner local attention for their throwback style. They got their break when they were noticed by Seattle based producer, Phil Ek, who had produced records for the Shins and Modest Mouse. Ek helped them produce their debut EP, "Fleet Foxes," which they sold at their performances. Fleet Foxes concert dates were booked at local Seattle venues in support of the EP.

By the end of 2007, the band was attracting attention through their MySpace music page and through word of mouth from their awesome live shows. The publicity soon reached the desks of A&R execs and the band was quickly signed to Seattle based label, Sub Pop. During this time, the band quickly compiled a sophomore EP, "Sun Giant," that they had only intended to sell on the road. The EP became a fan favorite and gained industry attention with Billboard and Rolling Stone praising their Crosby, Stills, and Nash inspired harmonies. Fleet Foxes concert performances were booked at 2008's SXSW festival in Austin as well as the Sasquatch! Festival in Europe, where they were also well received.

Fleet Foxes concert schedule included a 2008 national headlining tour and a brief visit to Europe. The duo expanded to a foursome with the addition of Christian Wargo and J. Tilman on guitars and drums. The group quickly ushered themselves into the recording studio to craft their self-titled debut LP in 2008, which was released in June. The album received a four star rating from Rolling Stone and was heralded as an "instant classic" by the UK's "Guardian". The album was commercially successful in Europe where it sold 200k plus copies and gained platinum status in the UK.

Fleet Foxes tour dates were scheduled internationally in support of their debut. Their concert dates in Australia and the UK were completely sold out! Following the hype, the band booked performances on Saturday Night Live and dates across Europe during 2009. More recently, the band is gearing up for the release of their sophomore set, "Helplessness Blues," this May, 2011. Pecknold has stated that the album was inspired by sixties psychedelic folk-rock and that they intended for the album to have a raw and genuine sound. To support the upcoming sophomore set, Fleet Foxes concert dates have been announced and they will make stops across North America and Europe throughout Summer, 2011. A good portion of Fleet Foxes tour dates are close to being sold out. Use Eventful as your source of information about the Fleet Foxes concert schedule and venue information.

Animal Collective: A small, experimental rock collective out of Baltimore, Animal Collective is one of the most promising musical collectives in the US right now. With eight albums produced in eleven years, the group has gained an international fan base that appears in droves on their busy tour dates. Animal Collective has been previewing some new songs at these critically acclaimed tour dates in 2011, which will appear on a new album that is set to record soon.

The collective's members are all connected in roundabout ways through their attendance in various progressive schools around Baltimore, Maryland. Noah Lennox (Panda Bear) and Josh Dibb (Deakin) were friends at the Waldorf School of Baltimore before graduating. Attending the Park School of Baltimore with Dibb was David Portner (Avey Tare), as well as a transfer student named Brian Weitz (Geologist), with whom he shared a love of the band Pavement. After dropping acid and becoming interested in psychedelic music, Dibb introduced Portner and Weitz to Lennox and the quartet began collaborating in different combinations. Despite Portner and Weitz attending school in New York while Dibb and Lennox went off to college in Boston, all four helped produce Lennox's debut, "self-titled" album, Panda Bear, in 1998. After the release, the four would still return to Baltimore over summer break to collaborate and perform tour dates.

It was during one of these summers that Portner asked Lennox to play drums on an album he was working on. Spirit They're Gone, Spirit They've Vanished was released in 2000 under the name Avey Tare and Panda Bear. Later in 2000, Weitz joined Lennox and Portner at their tour dates and the resulting tracks would make up the majority of the 2001 album, Danse Manatee. Dibb began performing with the group as a whole and soon after they released Campfire Songs in 2003. Sung Tongs was released in 2004 and quickly became the group's breakthrough record. The album received recognition and praise from popular magazines like Mojo and Rolling Stone, as well as Animal Collective's growing fan base at tour dates.

After Weitz returned from one year of graduate studies, the quartet once again rejoined to write song for their hit 2005 album, Feels. After nearly a year long concert schedule, Animal Collective began working on what would become their 2007 album, Strawberry Jam. The album became a huge success, with critics praising the continuation of Animal Collective's direction and evolution. The album's success paled in comparison to the popularity of 2009's Merriweather Post Pavilion, which began receiving rave reviews before the album even released.

Since that time, Animal Collective has released ODDSAC, a visual album which combines the bands music and psychedelic visuals inspired by the songs. Animal Collective can currently be found playing European tour dates in 2011. They are currently in the UK and will continue on to nations like Germany, Belgium, Poland, Italy, and France. On July 7, they'll return to he US to play five tour dates before ending their concert schedule on July 13. Don't miss the opportunity to see a unique and immersive live experience on Animal Collective tour dates in 2011.
