Stream:Grizzly Bear – Yet Again (from ‘Shields’, album out September 17/18)
Grizzly Bear revealed their new single, “Yet Again”, on Radio 1 last night, with the track featured as Huw Stephens’ ‘Hottest Record in the World’. The band will also perform the song, which comes from their new album ‘Shields’ (out Sept 17th on Warp Records), on leading US satirical show The Colbert Report this month as part of the recently-announced StePhest Colbchella RocktAugustfest, which takes place aboard the USS Intrepid.
Recorded over the better part of a year, ‘Shields’ represents the band’s most charged and concise collection of music to date and follows 2009′s critical and commercial breakthrough, ‘Veckatimest.’ They headline End of the Road festival in Dorset on Sept 1st, and later kick off an international tour on September 16th, including their biggest UK headline show to date at Brixton Academy on October 22nd.
