Drummer J. Tillman of highly acclaimed indie-folk band Fleet Foxes announced yesterday on his tumblr that he was quiting the band. He is quoted as saying “Farewell Fleet Fans and Friends. Back into the gaping maw of obscurity I go. Tokyo is my last show with the Foxes. Sorry if I was distant and obtuse if we ever met. Have fun.”
Fleet Foxes released their sophomore album “Helplessness Blues” last year.
