Big news for big-hearted, aging indie fans: Bright Eyes have reunited and are teasing new music. The long-running project of Conor Oberst has been on hiatus for nearly a decade, but Oberst revealed that the band will tour in 2020.

Interestingly enough, the Omaha band’s new album is being released via Dead Oceans and not on their longtime label home, Saddle Creek. The label seemed just as excited about the idea as the band’s legion of fans.

“Bright Eyes is not just a formative artist for me personally, but for countless people who work at Dead Oceans,” label head Phil Waldorf told Brooklyn Vegan. “To get to work with a band that is part of our own origin stories in falling in love with music is the rarest of privileges. We are thrilled to be part of another great chapter in Bright Eyes enduring legacy.”

As of right now, the band only has three US dates planned: two at Los Angeles’ Palladium and one at Forest Hills Stadium in New York. The first Los Angeles date on May 21 will feature support from Lavender Diamond. The New York show a month later will have a full bill that includes Japanese Breakfast and Lucy Dacus.

Tickets for the US shows are not yet on sale. Take a look at the dates and other info below.
