Brooklyn-based indie band Grizzly Bear announced early Wednesday that they’re heading into the studio to work on a new album, the follow-up to 2012’s well-received Shields. The band made the announcement on Twitter, writing, “We are starting to record the new album next month with tons of songs!”
The news comes after Grizzly Bear endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and they announced they’ll become one of the many acts supporting Sanders with performances. “We playing a Bernie Rally,” they tweeted. (Grizzly Bear will play at Brooklyn’s Prospect Park on Sunday for Sanders’ rally.)
