Earlier this week, Fleet Foxes teased their return by sharing a photo that pointed towards new material and telling fans that they would be playing live next year. The ‘White Winter Hymnal’ alt-folk heroes have not releases an album since 2011’s ‘Helplessness Blues’ – but have now told fans that their third record is “alllllmost done”. Frontman Robin Peckhold has long maintained that the third Fleet Foxes album would be likely to drop in 2017.
French indie veterans Phoenix also excited fans by looking for a comeback – this week updating their Twitter and Instagram profile pictures to an image of SMPTE colour bars, commonly used as a test pattern on televisions. It is the first update to their socials in almost over a year. The ‘Lisztomania’ stars are believed to be releasing the follow-up to 2013’s ‘Bankrupt!’ next year.
Two Door Cinema Club, Die Antwoord, Andrew Weatherall, Daphni, DJ Tennis, and Marvin & Guy are also among the latest names to join previously announced headliners Depeche Mode.
Bilbao BBK Live 2017 takes place from Thursday 6 to Saturday 8 July at Recinto Kobetamendi, Calle del Monte Cobetas in Bilbao, Spain.
