Grizzly Bear: Radiohead support becomes reality

On Sunday, August 3, Radiohead will play Verizon Wireless Music Center in Indianapolis. New York band Grizzly Bear will be supporting Radiohead, the first of a series of shows in North America.

“It’s always been kind of a joke with our band like ‘Yeah, we’re going to go on tour with Radiohead someday,’” said Grizzly Bear singer-guitarist Ed Droste to Vindy.com. “And everyone would laugh, like that’s the most unrealistic thing ever. And then they released their new album [‘In Rainbows’] and our booking agent submitted us for it. We didn’t hear anything for a long time.

“Then the next thing we heard they chose us. I guess they don’t even take submissions and they pick whomever they want. I still can’t believe it. Like I have a weird fear and there’s going to be a last-minute cancellation. It’s so surreal.”

Droste said he heard from rock act Liars, which opened for Radiohead on its first touring leg, that the green-conscious Thom Yorke and company provide all opening band members with a recyclable water bottle. Laughed Droste, “We’ll definitely be on the green wagon.”

Grizzly Bear released the critically acclaimed album ‘Yellow House’ (2006) and ‘Friend’ EP in 2007. The band are currently working on new material. The band performed new track ‘Two Weeks’ on David Letterman last week.

  • I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
