Indie rock darlings Bright Eyes returned in 2020 after a nine-year hiatus, and this year the Omaha, Nebraska band is on tour to promote their lastest album, Down in the Weeds, Where the World Once Was, available now via Dead Oceans! Bright Eyes perform at The Anthem in DC on Saturday, April 9.
Parklife DC is giving away a pair of tickets for you to see the show!
Bright Eyes’ most recent releases were three Companion series recordings, part of a larger project to reissue and re-record their entire catalog, “Falling Out of Love At This Volume,” “Contrast And Compare” (feat. Waxahatchee), and “Haligh, Haligh, A Lie, Haligh” (feat. Phoebe Bridgers).
Watch the official lyric video for “Haligh, Haligh, A Lie, Haligh” by Bright Eyes featuring Phoebe Bridgers on YouTube:
Bright Eyes began in 1995 as a recording moniker for a then 15-year-old Conor Oberst’s work with producer/multi-instrumentalist Mike Mogis. Mogis and composer/ arranger/ multi-instrumentalist Nathaniel Walcott became fully fledged members in 2006. Over the course of 23 years, the music’s impact and influence have been significant; Bright Eyes’ songs have been covered by dozens of artists, including Lorde, The Killers, Mac Miller, Dave Rawlings & Gillian Welch, Phoebe Bridgers, Snow Patrol, Jason Mraz, and beabadoobee.
