UK group Bear’s Den are about to release their new album ‘So That You Might Hear Me’, the follow up to their silver-selling debut Islands, which earned them an Ivor Novello nomination in the UK and a devoted following worldwide, and 2016’s more expansive ‘Red Earth & Pouring Rain’, which went Top 10 across Europe. 2017 saw the band cap four, non-stop years on the road with their largest headline shows to date, from sold-out tours of the States to a 7000-capacity arena in Belgium, and sold-out hometown shows at London’s iconic Brixton Academy and Hammersmith Apollo. The speed and scale of Bear’s Den‘s rise is remarkable and 2019 is set to be another year filled with wild successes.
Raised from the ashes of the much-appreciated band, Cherbourg comes Bear’s Den. After Cherbourg split-up, members Andrew Davie and Kevin Jones talked about starting a new band together. Davie locked himself up in an old mill outside of Glasgow to write some songs and when he came out, he and Jones asked the talented multi-instrumentalist Johannes Refsdal to join their band. That’s how Bear’s Den was born. A band with romantic, alternative folk songs that show influences from artists like Nick Drake and Bonnie Prince Billy.
Red Earth & Pouring Rain is their first album since the departure of Joey Haynes, Red Eart & Pouring Rain is inspired by the likes of the paintings of Edward Hopper, the novels of Raymond Carver, and film director Robert Altman’s Short Cuts. Tonight in cooncert at sala Bikini.
