​​For the last several months, Grizzly Bear have teased the impending release of their first new album in four years. Earlier this month, following a string of cryptic teasers, the band unveiled a new single called “Three Rings”. Now, they’ve confirmed details of the album. The Shields follow-up is entitled, Painted Ruins, and is due for release on August 18th.

They’ve also shared a second teaser track in the form of “Mourning Sound”. Frontman Ed Droste is in full remorse mode here, singing, “I made a mistake, I never should’ve tried,” over intricate layers of chugging bass, sonorous guitars, and even the occasional digitized hum. Stream it down below.
