Three years ago, you couldn't escape the marching drums, horn blasts and whistle whimsy of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros' "Home." Ugly Betty. Cyrus. Everywhere. The Los Angeles indie-pop group have returned to shun any "one-hit wonder" naysayers with their new album HERE, out May 29 on Community Music/Vagrant Records.
Details are still scarce about the album's sound, but the group will be promoting this one hard, appearing with members of Mumford & Sons and Old Crow Medicine Show at next week's South By Southwest festival and embarking on a month-long tour beginning May 4 in L.A. The band will headline the majority of the cross-country tour, but will make two stops in Texas to support Dave Matthews Band. Because you don't say no to Dave when he asks.
