Grizzly Bear: New Record, Tour Dates, Appreciation


A re-invigoration of blog buzz, a recent appearance at SXSW and track leaks abound, Grizzly Bear is at it again and I couldn’t be more excited. They have recently released a tour schedule is support of their forthcoming album, Veckatimest (out May 26) that includes a stop at DC’s 930 Club on June 1 with Here We Go Magic. Veckatimest was produced by the band’s own Chris Taylor and was named after an island in Massachusets the band visited while they were recording. It will have guest appearances including Beach House‘s Victoria LeGrand.


I have been a fan of this band since I saw them at the Reykjavik Art Museum at Iceland Airwaves in 2007. Followed by adoration of Yellow House and a captivating show at 6th and I last year, the band is coming back into my situation. After the jump, there is videos of some performances of tracks that have been around for a bit but are on the new album – While You Wait for the Others and Two Weeks on Letterman and the entire tour schedule.
