Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, the indie, gospel, folk rock band known for their hit "Home" released their third, self-titled album earlier this summer.
If you enjoyed the upbeat, lovey-dovey tones of their first album, you may be disappointed with the slightly more somber album. However, Alex Ebert, frontman who is also known for his solo career as Alexander, claims that this is the "rawest, most liberated, most rambunctious stuff [they've] done."
The band recently uploaded their video for the song "Life is Hard" that was filmed in front an audience at their performance at The Box Theater in NYC. True to their performance style in the past, the band is clearly having a very religious-like experience as they play the bittersweet anthem (it helps that Ebert resembles a dirty, modern day Jesus).
