Bright Eyes Are Back: 2020 Dates Announced

Bright Eyes


After a 9 year hiatus, Conor Oberst, Mike Mogis and Nathaniel Walcott have re-grouped to record and tour in 2020. The band, whose previous nine albums are some of the most influential records of a generation, last released a new LP, The People’s Key, in 2011, followed by a remastered box set collection of their work in 2016. In 2019, the trio returned to the studio to quietly begin work on new material — and late 2019 marked the band’s signing to esteemed indie Dead Oceans.

2020 is full of significant anniversaries for Bright Eyes. Fevers and Mirrors was released 20 years ago this May, while Digital Ash in a Digital Urn and I’m Wide Awake It’s Morning both turn 15 in January. And while 2020 is a year of milestones for the band, it’s also the year Bright Eyes returns. Amidst the current overwhelming uncertainty and upheaval of global and personal worlds, Oberst, Mogis, and Walcott reunited under the moniker as both an escape from, and a confrontation of, trying times. Getting the band back together felt right, and necessary, and the friendship at the core of the band has been a longtime pillar of Bright Eyes’ output.

For Bright Eyes, this long-awaited re-emergence feels like coming home.
