Published Mar 05, 2012Last month, we learned that Alex Ebert was returning to his Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros project to pump out a sophomore album in May. Now the multi-member indie rock ensemble have revealed that the set will be called Here and that they'll be taking the tunes on tour in the near future.
As previously reported, recording sessions took place in Bogalusa, LA, and at the band's own studio in Ojai, CA. While a tracklisting has yet to pop up, we can expect to learn more about the set before Community Music/Vagrant issues it on May 29.
"The making of this album has spanned a time of immense perseverance and, thankfully, co-creation," Ebert had said of Here in an earlier statement. "Making this album has been a test of our faith in ourselves and in the universe, and brought us closer together and in greater harmony with one another... A deluge of music has been written and recorded, and we are intensely excited to share it with anyone who wants to feel it."
The band will play a handful of shows this month but start up the promotion cycle again just a couple of weeks before Here hits retailers. So far they have but one Canadian date, which takes place on May 13 at Toronto's Kool Haus.
