Grizzly Bear Announces New Album and Tour


Grizzly Bear

Grizzly Bear announced their first new album in five years, Painted Ruins, to be released August 18th from RCA Records. The band began teasing the album in April with the release of several song snippets accompanied by abstract images on Instagram, cryptically tagged from various places around the globe like Berlin and Denver. They released their first single “Three Rings” earlier this month leading up to their big album announcement today. They also released another single “Mourning Sound” to accompany the reveal of a World Tour.

Painted Ruins

The new album is produced by Chris Taylor. The cover is painted by artist Chyrum Lambert. If the first two singles are an indicator, we can expect a complex and layered album filled with shadowy harmonies and textured aural landscapes. Exactly what Grizzly Bear does best.

Grizzly Bear ends their tour here in Los Angeles at the Palladium on December 13th. Check out the dates and buy tickets here.
