Bright Eyes have today revealed details of their awaited new record Down in the Weeds, Where the World Once Was, due to be released 21st August on Dead Oceans. 

The album will be the Omaha band's tenth, and as its title might suggest, is said to focus on an 'apocalyptic level of anxiety'. The announcement is also accompanied by a new single, 'Mariana Trench'. Watch the beautifully illustrated video by Art Camp below.
