Fleet Foxes are returning to active service after five years away.

According to an interview with guitarist Christian Wargo in DISTRICT, he and Robin Pecknold talked about getting the band back together while at Joanna Newsom‘s recent Los Angeles show.

“It’s not, like, ‘announced’ or anything, and none of us really knew it was coming, but it’s happening,” Wargo said. “Possibly unofficially at this stage, but it’s definitely a thing.”

Fleet Foxes have not released an album or toured since 2011, when they put out Helplessness Blues. Since then, Pecknold has returned to university at Columbia and played a number of solo gigs – most recently opening for Joanna Newsom on tour.
