Lauded quartet Grizzly Bear of Brooklyn have announced the release of their first album in three years, due for release in Australia on Friday the 14th of September on Warp through Inertia.
Grizzly Bear were catapulted to fame when their 2nd album 'Veckatimest' debuted at #8 on the Billboard 200 in 2009, and was highlighted as one of the year's most lauded releases. The album ranked #1 on the NPR Listener's Poll and was included in Top 10 end of year lists for The New York Times, Time Magazine, Pitchfork, SPIN, Music Australia Guide, Sydney Morning Herald, and many more. The band soon became well-known for their vocal harmonies and hazy-eyed choruses. In March 2012 highly respected music critic Jim Fusilli of The Wall Street Journal, declared 'Veckatimest' as "one of the best rock discs of this century so far."
Recorded over the better part of a year, the new album represents the band's most charged and concise collection of music to date since 2009's critical and commercial breakthrough, 'Veckatimest.' The album title and other details will be revealed soon.
Grizzly Bear will also kick off an international tour on 16th September, two days before the release of their new album. The tour will include the band's biggest hometown show to date at Radio City Music Hall in NYC.
While you are waiting for the release here is a little taste of what you can look forward to from the third Grizzly Bear album.
