It's crazy to think that Seattle folk outfit Fleet Foxes has been around long enough for an archival box set, but so goes the passage of time. Today the band announced First Collection 2006-2009, featuring the band's 2008 self-titled debut, the Sun Giant EP, and a slew of b-sides and rarities. Perhaps most notably is the inclusion of the band's first demo EP under the moniker The Fleet Foxes, which will get its first ever vinyl pressing with this set. The massive collection also features a 32-page book including old photos of the band, flyers and more.

First Collection is out Nov. 9 via Sub Pop/Nonesuch. Pre-orders are available now. Watch a nostalgic trailer for the release below, featuring archival footage shot bot lead vocalist Robin Pecknold's brother Sean.
