In 2009 and 2010, one of the biggest indie songs to hit the blogs, radio airwaves and television commercials was “Home” by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros. The acoustic, foot tap-inducing folk ballad helped pave the way for the success of the Los Angeles-based band and their critically acclaimed debut album, Up From Below. Over the past two-and-a-half years since that hit stores, the 11-piece group has toured around the world, performed at huge festivals including Coachella, traveled the U.S. in classic style with Mumford & Sons and Old Crow Medicine Show on the Railroad Revival Tour, and lead singer Alex Ebert has even put out his own solo project—off of which he tapped none other than RZA to remix a song. But most importantly, as we now know, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros have been in the studio recording their sophomore LP. Although it has yet to be named and no songs from it have been unveiled, the album does have a release date. You can look for it to be available through Community Music/Vagrant on May 29. Also below, check out the band’s upcoming tour dates and see what frontman Alex Ebert had to say about the process of creating the new record.

“The making of this album has spanned a time of immense perseverance and, thankfully, co-creation,” said frontman Alex Ebert. “Making this album has been a test of our faith in ourselves and in the universe, and brought us closer together and in greater harmony with one another… A deluge of music has been written and recorded, and we are intensely excited to share it with anyone who wants to feel it.”
