And today we see the name "Bright Eyes" in announcements for upcoming shows. for the first time in nearly a decade. Stay tuned. Dead Oceans also posted a Bright Eyes teaser video featuring rehearsal footage of an orchestra, and you can watch that below.

Keep your eye out for announcements regarding new music, but below you will find the newly announced Bright Eyes tour dates - their first in almost a decade.

Frontman Oberst shared a short list of places the group will perform this year. But seeing the name "Bright Eyes" - a name that still retains great emotional resonance for some of us - is always different from seeing the name "Conor Oberst".

'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. Now they've also officially confirmed shows in NYC, LA, and Tokyo, and the former Saddle Creek band confirmed the Dead Oceans signing too. Since then, Oberst has released two solo albums and, last year, partnered with Phoebe Bridgers for their Better Oblivion Community Center project.

Phenomenal London rap talent Little Simz will hit the festival, joined by Whitney, Squid, Aldous Harding, Richard Hawling, and Field Music. Bright Eyes will end the summer playing United Kingdom festival End Of The Road. But Bright Eyes is still hanging like a star, damn glowing in the dark, on the programming poster. ⠀ ⠀ 2020 is going to be a very special year.

The band went on hiatus after the release of their ninth studio album The People's Key in 2011.
