The unfeasibly hip Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros will return with their third, as yet untitled, album on July 23rd.

Band leader Alex Ebert has released a statement that explains the genesis of the new record, "In the middle of the recording process we realized we were essentially making a double album. Being four years since our last album, the writing explored a wide variety of subject and sound, as it turned out we had a lot to say. Instead of putting it out all at once, we found that two different albums seemed to be forming. Alone these albums are albums. Together these albums express a varying and so relatively living portrait of our lives."

The band also take in a huge tour over the summer, more details are available at their official site.
