Bright Eyes is finally back, with a vengeance! This year the indie folk giants around Conor Oberst are reissuing every single album. All nine albums will be accompanied by an EP with remixed versions, covers and special guest spots. The ‘Companion Series’ promises to be another irresistible trinket for the fans. In the past Conor Oberst has strayed from the warm nest of Bright Eyes to engage in sidesteps with The Mystic Valley Band, Monsters of Folk, Desaparecidos and the fantastic Better Oblivion Community Center with Phoebe Bridgers. But now Oberst has rounded up his partners in crime Mike Mogis and Nathaniel Walcott for a new serving of high-intensity indie folk and a new world tour which just happens to include your familiar festival arena in Kiewit.
