The bear has awoken from a four year slumber. Grizzly Bear surprised fans on Wednesday morning (Apr. 13) by announcing that they are gearing up to record the long-awaited follow-up to 2012 Shields. After a nearly year-long Twitter silence, a series of tweets announced both the new recordings and a special show this weekend.
"We r passionate to make amazing music for years to come!" they tweeted, adding that bassist Chris Taylor just became a dad. "We are starting to record the new album next month with tons of songs!"
