Indie folk outfit Fleet Foxes will perform at the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival at Prospect Park Bandshell on Aug. 2 at 7 p.m. The benefit concert, which supports free programming at the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, will also feature Sandy Alex G.
Fleet Foxes are promoting Crack-Up, their newly released third studio long-player, released back in June through Nonesuch Records. The 11-track album, which follows on the heels of a lengthy hiatus, debuted at No. 3 on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart and No. 9 on the Billboard 200. Crack-Up is anchored by the single “Third of May / Ōdaigahara” and also includes two additional singles: “Fool’s Errand” and “If You Need To, Keep Time on Me.”
Helplessness Blues, Fleet Foxes’ sophomore studio album, emerged in May 2011 via Sub Pop and Bella Union. The critically acclaimed album, which went on to garner a Grammy Award nomination for Best Folk Album, birthed the singles “Helplessness Blues,” “Grown Ocean,” and “The Shrine / An Argument.”
The Seattle-bred band’s gold-certified self-titled debut was released in June 2008. It was supported by three singles: “White Winter Hymnal,” “He Doesn’t Know Why,” and “Your Protector.”
Opening the show will be Sandy Alex G, a Philadelphia-based lo-fi singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Sandy Alex G is promoting his latest full-length, Rocket, which was released back in May through Domino Recording Company.
