Grizzly Bear have released a new video for gun-shy, simultaneously launching their brand new Tumblr page: grizzlybearband.tumblr.com
Explaining the inspiration behind the video, director Kris Moyes said: "The idea came from a question: if the creative energy of any living organism could be seen, what would it look like? Ed, Daniel, T and Bear demonstrate where their creative energy is located by extracting their hair, nails, skin, sweat, tears and blood. This is an invitation for a very rare glimpse of what creative energy could look like on a molecular level, if it could be seen."
The band also announced their biggest UK show to date at London's Alexandra Palace, headlining and curating ATP’s I’ll Be Your Mirror festival on May 5th. Confirmed to support them are Dyke Parks, The Walkmen, Tortoise, Real Estate, Cass McCombs and I Break Horses, with more to be confirmed. Yeah Yeah Yeahs will headline/curate May 4th.
Tickets go on sale Thursday 31st January at 9am at: http://www.atpfestival.com/events/ibymlondon2013.php
gun-shy is taken from fourth Grizzly Bear album Shields, out now:
