There isn’t much in the way of details yet, but within the last 24 hours, Grizzly Bear, Yeasayer, and The Walkmen have all announced plans for new studio albums.

Grizzly Bear will head to Texas later this month to begin work on the follow-up to 2009’s Veckatimest, according to a note on the band’s Facebook page.

Yeayaer’s sophomore LP, Odd Blood, was released in February 2010, but the band has already written several new songs for its successor. An issued press release confirms that the band will enter the studio following their remaining U.S. tour dates, and they’ll road test some of the new material during these shows. Find the band’s itinerary below.

Finally, as TwentyFourBit points out, The Walkmen are also ready to record their next full length effort, despite the fact their most recent LP, Lisbon, is less than a year old. In an interview with Iowa City’s Little Village, frontman Hamilton Leithauser revealed that the band will hit the studio in November. They also recently debuted a new song on the road, which you can check out below.

Of course, we’ll post additional details on all three releases as soon as we get it.
