Grizzly Bear are recording their new record next month

Grizzly Bear's Ed Droste has confirmed the band's plans to leap into the studio next month via a "sick selfie".

The band's most recent album, Shields, was released in 2012.

Last summer, Droste explained that the new album will feel different. "We're feeling more adventurous with the sonic directions, changing it up a little bit – not like, a techno dance album… It's in the beginning stages," Droste said. "Only a couple songs have started to take shape and it's gotta be like, a good dozen or so before we get the picture."

Droste also explained that getting the band together, because they live in different corners of the USA, wasn't going to be easy. "That's a huge question mark." he told Rolling Stone. "I would be lying if I said it didn't cause great anxiety. When I'm stressed about it, I have to remember that every time we try to do a new album, I have huge anxiety. Every time, it's like, 'Woah, that was a crazy process, we have to do something different.'"

It seems that "question mark" has been resolved. In a new Instagram post, Droste reveals that Grizzly Bear will head into the studio on 1 June.

Sick selfie ---cool news tho! Starting to officially record new album June 1st! ��❤️
