Ready for the second of the three Harvest sideshow announcements today? Of course you are! And it’s none other than the hugely popular Brooklyn indie quartet, Grizzly Bear!
The band catapulted to fame in 2006 following the release of their second album, the internationally acclaimed Yellow House.
Their 2009 follow-up Veckatimest debuted at No.8 on the Billboard chart in 2009, and included the singles Two Weeks and While You Wait for the Others. It was highlighted as one of the year’s most-lauded releases, ranking #1 on the NPR Listener‘s Poll and included in Top 10 end-of-year lists for outlets such as The New York Times, Time Magazine, Pitchfork, SPIN and Sydney Morning Herald.
This Friday (yes… TOMORROW) Grizzly Bear will release their highly anticipated fourth album Shields. Recorded over the better part of a year, the album has been described as the band’s most charged and concise collection of music to date, as heard in the singles Sleeping Ute and Yet Again.
So what better way to tie in with the album’s release than the announcement of two Grizzly Bear sideshows in Melbourne and Sydney in November! Tickets for both shows are on sale now.
Grizzly Bear – Harvest Sideshows:
Monday, November 12 – Billboard – Melbourne
