The Seattle quintet rose to prominence with their 2008 EP "Sun Giant." This led to catching the attention of producer Phil Ek, who worked with bands like Built to Spill and The Shins. Later in the same year, the band released a self-titled debut album that exploded in popularity spearheaded by their most popular song, "White Winter Hymnal."

The band has been nominated for two Grammy awards, one for Best Folk Album in 2012 for their album "Helplessness Blues" and one for Best Alternative Music Album in 2022 for their album "Shore."

Fleet Foxes is touring with UWADE, who contributed vocals to "Wading in Waist High-Water," the opening track on their 2020 album "Shore."

Tickets are for sale for their June 27 tour date at Avondale Brewing Company either through Fleet Foxes' website or on Avondale Brewing Company's website. Tickets will go on sale for $40 Friday, Feb. 24.
