GRIZZLY BEAR catapulted to fame when '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, and 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."
Now Brooklyn’s dearly loved indie quartet GRIZZLY BEAR 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.
Recorded over the better part of a year, the album represents the band's most charged and concise collection of music to date. The album title and other details will be revealed soon.
GRIZZLY BEAR will also kick off an international tour this 16th September, just 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 and a trip to Australia to take in the Harvest Festival in November.
