Yesterday, drummer J. Tillman announced he is leaving the band Fleet Foxes on his Tumblr account. “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,” wrote Tillman.
Tillman will focus on his solo career under the name Father John Misty.
Fleet Foxes members, Christian Wargo and Casey Wescott, have also now signed with Sub Pop as new band Poor Moon. Their Illusion EP is due out March 27.
Here is a track off his 6th solo and 2009 album Year in the Kingdom.
