The band, Grizzly Bear, has been around since 2002. From the untamed arena of NYC (Brooklyn, to be exact), this band plays a warm and incredible blend of Rock and Folk, with a mix of Psychedelia within the mix. With a library of four previously released sets, they have recently signed with a big label (RCA Records) for their anticipated fifth album. Their last set, Shields, was issued way back in 2012. It comfortably followed the success of their notable third album, Veckatimest (2009), which hit the charts high in almost every imaginable market in the world. Grizzly Bear is an easy band to love.

On August 18, watch for Painted Ruins. It will offer eleven brand new GB songs, an event that many of us have waited patiently for. Painted Ruins will be available on CD, DD, and a vinyl 2LP set.

You can listen to two songs off the upcoming album: the first being “Three Rings” now available as an official video, and their recently released “Mourning Sound” as an audio-only YouTube offering. (Hear both below!) The band will begin a world tour in support of the new album beginning in early October 2017. Tickets are now available for some dates.
