Finally recovered after playing SPIN's boisterous Year in Music Party, Grizzly Bear return today with a batch of fresh tour dates, and an artsy new Tumblr replete with hypnotic gifs and a Shields remix from Lindstrøm. The once moody and atmospheric track "Gun Shy" is transformed, in the hands of the Norwegian producer, into a full-fledged dance song. It's almost unrecognizable until Ed Droste's vocals finally emerge in the last third of the remix.
And about those tour dates: The band hit the road in North America starting in late-March, with a stop at NYC's just-announced Governors Ball on June 9. And although it's not listed here, judging by the pair of performances at Henry Miller Library in Big Sur, California on April 15 and 16, a slot at Coachella on the weekends of April 12 and April 19 looks to be a safe bet. Pencil them onto SPIN's ongoing list of who we know is playing Coachella. The rest of the dates and the Lindstrøm remix are below.
