Show Review

In the final video of our series profiling Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros we get to the good stuff...the big, almighty, higher calling kind of philosophy that propels a band that's being blown sideways through life, never really sure where it's all going. What they do know is that sometimes the world can be a bit of a downer; there is a lot that conspires to kill the dreams we have at a young age...dreams that are inevitably snubbed out by adulthood, professionalism, cynicism, and the like. So Alexander Ebert focuses on transcending such negativity, even death, with his latest work on Here. It's the tortuous stuff that makes such a beautiful song out of the band's current single "Man On Fire". Have a look at our mind boggling conversation with Alex, checking out spits and spats of their performance of "Man On Fire". If you like what you see make sure you check out Part 1 and Part 2 from this series, as well as our full-length concert cut of the band's performance in Philadelphia at WXPN's World Caf Live

Artist Bio

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros formed in Los Angeles in 2007. They released their debut album, Up From Below, in July 2009 on Community Music. The album has sold over 275,000 copies in the US, and charted on iTunes for 69 straight weeks. With its unique and universal appeal, their hit single Home soared to over 775,000 downloads. After intensive touring throughout 2009-2011, including hit appearances at Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, and Coachella, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros have proven themselves to be a touring force to be reckoned with. In March 2011, the troupes lead singer Alex Ebert released his solo debut album, Alexander, on Community Music, which was written and recorded during breaks from being on tour as a part of Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros. The album includes ten brand new songs that Alexander wrote and played entirely himself. In April 2011, the band embarked on the Railroad Revival Tour with Mumford & Sons and Old Crow Medicine Show where the band traveled exclusively in vintage railcars across the American Southwest for a week and played concerts at unique outdoor locations along the route. Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros actively support Water Wells For Africa, Charity Water, APJ Now, Hope Campaign and Voice Project. Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros will release their second studio album on Community Music / Vagrant Records on May 29, 2012. - via JamBase
