Published May 17, 2017After a bunch of new-album hinting and the new song "Three Rings," the once-dormant Grizzly Bear are emerging from hibernation with new album, as well as a tour of North American and Europe. And yes, they will be coming to Canada.
The new record, called Painted Ruins, will arrive on August 18 via RCA. It will mark the band's first full-length since 2012's Shields. Right now, details are slim on the record, but you can see its cover art above. A new track is also expected to premiere today (May 17) on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 radio show.
UPDATE (5/17, 12:15 p.m. EDT): You can now hear the new song "Mourning Sound" at the bottom of the page.
