leave a comment »

Fleet Foxes released a new video this afternoon for the song “Grown” which will be on their upcoming record, Helplessness Blues. The album drops May 3rd via Sub Pop Records. The video consists of grainy footage of the band traveling and recording. It kind of looks like it was done on film instead of digital. Who knows? Also, they play the Tower Theatre in May. More details about the show can be found HERE.
