ON THE ROAD: Bright Eyes on Tour and Releasing New Album

For the first time in over three years, Conor Oberst is making his long awaited return to the stage as Bright Eyes. After releasing two great albums under the name Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band, Bright Eyes will be going on a twenty-two date tour and releasing a highly anticipated new album, The People's Key. The album will be released on February 15, just a couple of weeks before the American tour begins in Miami on March 3. The guys over at Saddle Creek records have given us a free download of the first single, Shell Games.

The new single seems to pick up right where Bright Eyes left off. Shell Games is full of indie-pop sensibility and the unmistakable voice that only Oberst can bring. I hope to make it to the Atlanta show on March 4th at the Tabernacle and bring a full review of what promises to be a great show.
