Fleet Foxes have revealed that they are heading "back into the cave" to finish work on their second album.

Writing on the band's Facebook page yesterday (October 12), frontman Robin Pecknold said that they still had "ways to go" before finishing the follow-up to their 2008 self-titled debut.

"I guess I spoke too soon," Pecknold wrote. "The record, while close to being done, still has a ways to go. Would have been nice to have realized this before flying to New York to finish it, but so it goes."

He added: "This is how the first record went too, I think two songs were kept from the first batch of 12 we recorded for that album. Back into the cave. Thanks for waiting/caring, we just want it to be really great."

The band previously announced that they had finished recording their new album and were due to begin mastering and mixing it in New York.
