Grizzly Bear are set to expand their critically acclaimed album 'Shields' with a host of rare and unreleased material.
Soothing, majestic and seemingly effortless, the critical acclaim lavished on Grizzly Bear's 'Shields' hides the lengthy, convoluted writing process behind the album. Sessions took place first in Texas, with the band then de-camping for Northern climes.
Completing work on one of their most accomplished albums yet, Grizzly Bear were left with extras. Lots and lots of extras. With that in mind, Grizzly Bear have decided to expand 'Shields' into a two-disc CD-set and 18-track digital album.
'Shields Expanded' contains the original studio album, alongside eight additional B-sides, remixes and demos.
Check out the Marfax, Texas demo of 'Will Calls' below.
