Posted on

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!”

Though the band hasn’t released their own new album since 2012, Grizzly Bear appeared on the 59-track Grateful Dead tribute album when they helped cover “Terrapin Station” with nearly 50 musicians.

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.)
