Announce New Album ‘So that you might hear me’
Out 26th April 2019 (on Communion Records)
+ UK & Irish Tour Announced For April 2019
Today, Bear’s Den announce that their third studio album, ‘So that you might hear me,’ will be released on 26th April 2019. The band also reveal two new tracks today, showcasing the breadth of musicality on the record. Listen to ‘Fuel on the Fire’ and ‘Blankets of Sorrow’ here: https://BearsDen.lnk.to/Sothatyoumighthearme
‘So that you might hear me’ was recorded at several studios in Seattle with the producer Phil Ek (The Shins, Fleet Foxes, Father John Misty) and was mixed by Craig Silvey (Arcade Fire, Metronomy).
A need for connection lies at the heart of the band’s third album. Both bold and exposed, intimate yet expansive, the first two tracks are a perfect example of this: ‘Fuel On The Fire’ pulses and blossoms from the visceral throb of drum machine beats and electric guitars into an orchestral beauty that showcases the more electronic side of the band. This is juxtaposed with the bewitching “Blankets Of Sorrow" which demonstrates the more intimate sound of Bear’s Den as it explores themes of familial love and of trying to reach someone who can no longer be reached. With the band loved by their fans for the way their songs have woven themselves into the fabric of some of the most bittersweet chapters of their lives, ‘So that you might hear me’ continues in that vein, pairing soaring melodies with poignant and at times unsettlingly personal lyricism.
So that you might hear me’ is the follow-up to 2014’s ‘Islands’, which earned the band an Ivor Novello nomination, and 2016’s more expansive ‘Red Earth & Pouring Rain’, which reached No.6 in the UK Album Chart. Bear’s Den have sold almost 500,000 records over the course of their career, with ‘Red Earth & Pouring Rain’ seeing them cap four years of non-stop touring (selling a total of 100,000 tickets across Europe) with two glorious sold-out homecoming shows at London’s Brixton Academy and Hammersmith Apollo.
‘So that you might hear me’ will be released on 26th April on Communion Records.
