Grizzly Bear release Painted Ruins, their highly anticipated fifth full-length album and first for RCA Records. The band – Chris Bear, Ed Droste, Daniel Rossen and Chris Taylor – spent the better part of two years writing and recording the 11 new compositions on Painted Ruins. Taylor produced the album and it was mixed by Grammy Award-winning engineer Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, The War on Drugs, Weezer). Sessions took place at Allaire Studios in upstate New York and various locations around Los Angeles, including Taylor's own Terrible Studios. Rolling Stone called the record's lead single "Three Rings" "spellbinding" while Spin exclaimed that the band "strike gold" with straightforward second single "Mourning Sound." Painted Ruins follows the group's critical and commercial 2012 breakthrough Shields, which debuted at #7 on the Billboard 200. 180g 2LP-set with download insert.
