Watch Grizzly Bear Perform on ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’

Grizzly Bear performed on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night (8/18/17) on CBS. The band was promoting their fifth studio album, Painted Ruins, which was released on August 18, 2017 via RCA Records. You can now watch the group perform their song, “Mourning Sound,” located below.

Produced by band member Chris Taylor, Grizzly Bear spent two years writing and recording Painted Ruins. Recording sessions mostly took place at Allaire Studios in New York, but also at various locations around Los Angeles, including Taylor’s own Terrible Studios.

“We had a lot of fun making the record,” says guitarist/co-lead vocalist Daniel Rossen. “Even though there are serious themes we tried to keep the sound as light as possible. Maybe it’s a matter of being a little older and not assuming that there should be so much wrapped up in what we were doing.”
