Bright Eyes will unveil a new 4-song CD/6-song 12î on May 6th called There Is No Beginning To The Story. The first song, "From A Balance Beam," will also be released on the forthcoming full length The Story in the Soil, while the 12" features a live cover of Neil Youngís "Out On The Weekend." Bright Eyes will support their new EP on a two week tour which kicks off May 10 in Minneapolis, with help from fellow Saddle Creek artists The Good Life.
