Published Sep 17, 2013Brooklyn art pop outfit Grizzly Bear haven't yet announced a proper follow-up to last year's Shields, but they will offer up some previously unheard material with a just-announced expanded reissues of the album.
The new editions of the record will be available in two iterations. First up is Shields: Expanded, which sees the group offering up the original album alongside eight B-sides, remixes and demos. Those eight tracks will also be available on their own on the release Shields: Demos. The artwork for the latter is available above.
The releases feature three demos that were recorded in Marfa, TX, before the band entered a proper studio to make Shields. One of those, an early recording of "Will Calls," can be heard below.
Warp will release Shield: Expanded as a double disc CD and as a digital download. Shields: B-Sides will be available on 180-gram vinyl and as a digital download. Both releases will be out on November 12.
