New Music Video: Fleet Foxes - The Shrine / An Argument

Fleet Foxes have had an amazing 2011. They're on tour in Europe as we speak, continuing the ongoing celebration of their sophomore album Helplessness Blues, which was released to critical acclaim in May. They'll be in Australia over New Years, too!

But it doesn't stop there. In anticipation of a new limited edition 12", They've just released an incredible 8-minute animation to their epic track "The Shrine / An Argument", directed by Sean Pecknold. Enjoy!
