Ed-Sharpe-2012

Mark your calendars: Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros will return with their third studio album on July 23rd. Expect the title and album artwork to be revealed shortly.

According to a press release issued last year, the album was recorded during the same session which led to Here. “In the middle of the recording process we realized we were essentially making a double album. Being four years since our last album, the writing explored a wide variety of subject and sound, as it turned out we had a lot to say,” explained the band’s Alex Ebert in a statement. “Instead of putting it out all at once, we found that two different albums seemed to be forming. Alone these albums are albums. Together these albums express a varying and so relatively living portrait of our lives.”

Not surprisingly, the band has a busy upcoming tour schedule, with appearances scheduled at Sasquatch!, Firefly, and Bonnaroo among many other festivals. Check out their full docket here.
