After the second album and an exhausting tour, Pecknold made a quiet announcement in 2013 saying that the Foxes were on an indefinite hiatus. Pecknold started questioning if music was really his passion, wanting to maybe aim for a different career path. Then, in 2016 it was hinted that the Foxes were working on a new album and were back together. It was finally confirmed on Christmas day, with an expected 2017 release date.

* DigitalPiracyIsEvil: Averted. Robin Pecknold has come out in defense of downloading songs off the internet, saying this is how he acquired much of the music that inspired him.

Their music features lots of complex instrumentation and vocal harmony, inviting many comparisons to the BeachBoys and Crosby, Stills, Nash and [[Music/NeilYoung Young]], along with other acts from the [[TheSixties Sixties]] and [[TheSeventies Seventies]]. The general atmosphere often evokes a somewhat Autumnal feel, similar to the likes of Music/NickDrake. Ultimately, however, the Fleet Foxes stand out it the music world as a very original act. The band's skilled musicianship and Pecknold's talent for songwriting have also attracted much praise by music fans and press alike.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Their first music release, the self-titled EP, has a much more Beatles-influenced indie pop/rock sound compared to their later, much more well-known albums.

* TitleDrop: Most of their songs do not feature the title in any prominent way, [[NonAppearingTitle assuming the title is even in the song at all]]. Often it is only a brief word or phrase that gives the song its name. Examples: "Blue Ridge Mountains", "Montezuma", "Sim Sala Bim" and "Helplessness Blues" .

* UncommonTime: "Battery Kinzie" jumps around between 4/4, 6/4, and a bit of 2/4, 3/4, and 5/4.

* DoingItForTheArt: From interviews, this is the impression one gets of Pecknold's attitude to his music. It is probably the reason for the second album's long production time.



* ScheduleSlip: Their second album was originally supposed to be released in 2010.
