Bear's Den!

Bear’s Den today reveal Dew On The Vine, the new single to be taken from their Top 10 album, Red Earth & Pouring Rain.

The group are shortly to embark on their biggest UK tour to date, with sold out shows including Brixton Academy on 8th November, and today announce a new European tour for spring 2017, culminating in their recently announced show at Hammersmith Eventim Apollo on 5th April. Tickets for the new spring dates go on sale this week.

The video for Dew On The Vine, also released today, was directed by Louis Bhose and features band and crew in a Fight Club-inspired ping pong tournament that may or may not be representative of their real-life life on the road.

Red Earth & Pouring Rain is the follow up to Bear’s Den’s Ivor Novello-nominated 2014 debut, Islands, and sees a group taking huge leaps forward to become another great success story of a British band breaking through. Their 2014 debut, Islands, had been a true slow burning success over an 18 month period, with the band building a huge fanbase through consistently stellar live shows and huge airplay for the singles, Agape, and the Ivor Novello-nominated Above The Clouds of Pompeii.

As well as its UK success, Red Earth & Pouring Rain is off to a flying start internationally, with Top 10 chartings in Holland (#5) and Belgium (#9) as well as a Top 30 debut in Germany (#26). The band’s recent US headline tour also sold out in its entirety.

AMBER RUN RETURN!

Notts graduates Amber Run today announce their return, with a new tour, new album and new single!! Here's the scoop:

Today marks the return of Amber Run, who come back flexing their muscles with brand new song “Stranger”. The UK four-piece are also readying to release their sophomore album, For A Moment, I Was Lost, a 12-track chronicle of their interval between the last, packed with moments of expansive beauty & full-blooded raw emotion. They’re also announcing a February tour to coincide with the album’s launch.

"Stranger is about being hopeful” explains the band, continuing “about realising that sometimes you don’t get what you need but you’ll keep moving on regardless. At it’s root, Stranger is about how it’s worth suffering for your art. It's about reconnecting with the thing you love most and remembering that nothing that's worth having comes easy.”

Speaking about the album the band had to say “We have always believed in evolution as a band. Not reinvention so much as taking what's already there and making it better. As students in Nottingham, we would sit and say “we’ll be the band we want to be by the 4th album”. Somewhere along the way, we forgot that evolution takes time. We forgot that any new experience has a learning curve.

“The new album trims the fat from our previous music, and get down to the bare bones of the songs. We’re songwriters, and where 5AM was a collection of songs written in our youth, these new songs are, for us, a timely response to more recent experiences."

Also on the album is track “Haze”, which doubles as a free download for pre-ordering the record early.
