Grizzly Bear

The return of Grizzly Bear is long overdue — the band’s last album, Shields, came out in 2012 — but at least now, it’s finally here. Earlier this month, the group shared “Three Rings,” their first new song in five years. Today, they further solidified their comeback with the announcement of a new album, Painted Ruins. The record is slated to come out on August 18th, and as Stereogum notes, the album art is based on a painting by artist Chyrum Lambert.

The band unveiled the record on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 Radio show this afternoon, and while there, they also premiered the second new song from the album, titled “Mourning Sound.” The group also announced that they’ll head out on the road for the first tour dates since they were supporting Shields in 2013 — although the band did perform at a Bernie Sanders rally last year.
