Grizzly Bear has seen incredible success with their latest album Painted Ruins (RCA Records). The album has earned widespread praise from the New York Times, NPR Music and GQ, who commended the band’s “strikingly gorgeous music and harmonies.” Esquire called Painted Ruins “their most mature album yet,” and Rolling Stonedubbed the music “ornate” and “spellbinding.” Rolling Stone also praised it in their Top 50 Albums of 2017 roundup: “Fully charged and ready to break new ground, this is the kind of post-hiatus comeback most band’s fans can only dream of.” In their 9/10 review, Under the Radar said, “the album is the sound of a band cohering as never before with a formidable swagger.” The album has earned 4/5 stars from Mojo and Q Magazine and 9/10 stars from Clash and Uncut, and Paste Quarterly declared, “Grizzly Bear made an album for the times: something wild and alive, bucking assumptions and beaming color, their best yet.”
Following the album’s release, the band embarked on a 30+ date worldwide headlining tour, which took them through Europe, the U.S. and Mexico. The tour received tons of praise, as the Austin American-Statesman called the band’s live show “dialed in and instantly appealing,” and City Pages raved, “[The] simple but striking set perfectly augmented the band’s dreamy, textured arrangements and soaring harmonies.” In addition to the tour, Grizzly Bear also performed on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert,” “CBS Saturday Morning,” and “CONAN” in support of Painted Ruins.
