Indie Rock band Bright Eyes has been upping its touring game lately, and Cincinnati will be part of the fun.

The Omaha-born band will perform at Cincinnati's Andrew J. Brady Music Center on Wednesday, June 1, as part of the trio's ever-expanding tour for 2022. Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Feb. 4.

Bright Eyes continues to support its 2020 album Down in the Weeds, Where the World Once Was, the band's first album since The People's Key in 2011. Down in the Weeds peaked at #36 on the Billboard 200 chart and was critically acclaimed.

The group retired in 2011 but left the door open for future projects. Bright Eyes has since begun what a press release calls "an extensive reissue/re-recording project" with the band revisiting and reworking their entire nine-album catalog in addition to providing new companion pieces themselves and by other artists.

The press release says 52 new recordings will be available in 2022. Three reissued albums and their companion pieces are available as pre-orders now.

Below, watch Bright Eyes perform at the South by Southwest music festival in 2011.
