The time has come -- Grizzly Bear will drop the much-anticipated Shields album on September 18th via Warp Records. Their 2009 effort,Veckatimest, shot them to Billboard's Top 10 and paved the way to them becoming one of the more accomplished bands of our time. The group took on a more collaborative effort in writing their songs this time around. Granted, several of the members had success on their solo efforts, it was cool to see it didn't dissuade another GB stroke of production genius. When it comes to Grizzly Bear, it's easy to say there's a lot of talent in the room. Shields crosses new territory. It is what will make this album so beautiful. Stream "Half Gate" below.
