Six years after the release of the Grammy-nominated “Helplessness Blues,” critically acclaimed Seattle-based folk band Fleet Foxes has announced its upcoming third album, “Crack-Up,” and with it comes a May 16 show at the Knitting Factory.

“Crack-Up” will be released June 16, via Nonesuch Records. The album was written by singer Robin Pecknold and co-produced by Pecknold and bandmate and childhood friend Skyler Skjelset. The first single from the album, “Third of May/Ōdaigahara,” which nearly reaches the nine-minute mark, is a reflection on how the pair’s relationship has endured over the years.

The band is also playing Missoula May 15, Portland May 18 and a May 19 hometown show in Seattle.

Tickets are $35 and go on sale 10 a.m. Friday. Tickets are available by calling (866) 468-7623 or online at ticketweb.com or sp.knittingfactory.com. Ticket buyers have the option of adding a CD, vinyl or digital version of “Crack-Up” to their ticket order. Physical orders will ship before the June 16 release date, and digital albums will be delivered on June 16.
