Grizzly Bear Announce 2009 North American Tour Dates :: w/ Austin dates



As you may have already heard, Grizzly Bear is set to release their third full-length album, Veckatimest on May 26th. The guys took the strange name for the album from an island in Dukes County, Massachusetts. The artwork was done by William J. O'brien. A few days ago, a terrible rip of the new album was leaked on the web and we're trying our damnest to fight the urge to find it and listen to it. We can wait. Hopefully.

If you'd like to get your chance to hear the album live, Grizzly Bear just announced their upcoming North American tour dates, including three stops here in Austin (two of them are for SXSW). Their final appearance here in Austin, will have them peforming at The Parish. Tickets for the all ages show are $20 and go on sale this Saturday (3/7) at 10 am.

Update: The Austin show is now SOLD OUT!!
