About Bear’s Den

Acclaimed U.K. band, Bear’s Den, return with their third album So that you might hear me out April 26 via Rounder Records. So that you might hear me follows 2016’s critically lauded Red Earth & Pouring Rain, which debuted top 10 in the U.K. and received critical acclaim from NPR’s World Café who called it, “a daydreamer’s highway anthem,” while BBC News furthered, “There are echoes of eighties stadium rock and Fleetwood Mac and Bruce Springsteen, two acts the pair acknowledge as an influence.” Fans can pre order So that you might hear me HERE.

Additionally, “Fuel on the Fire” and “Blankets of Sorrow,” the first tracks to be revealed from the record, debut today. Listen/share them HERE and HERE.

So that you might hear me was recorded at several studios in Seattle with producer Phil Ek (The Shins, Fleet Foxes, Father John Misty) and was mixed by Craig Silvey (Arcade Fire, Metronomy). Pairing melodies with poignant and unsettlingly personal lyricism, the need for connection lies at the heart of So that you might hear me.

Of So that you might hear me, band members Andrew Davie (lead vocals, guitar) and Kevin Jones (vocals, drums, bass, guitar) explains, “The album started out as an attempt at trying to communicate with someone honestly. Our thoughts are not all rational, not all considered or tied up with ribbons and bows. This album is an attempt to reveal the honest and difficult challenge of communicating with anyone that you really care about.”

In support of the release, the band will embark on an extensive run of North American tour dates this summer starting on May 6 in Austin, TX. The run of shows includes stops at New York’s Irving Plaza, Los Angeles’ The Fonda Theatre, Nashville’s Marathon Music Works, D.C.’s 9:30 Club, Chicago’s Thalia Hall and more. See below for a complete list of dates.

The London-based band played music in various incarnations before officially forming in 2012. Their 2014 debut album, Islands, earned them an Ivor Novello nomination, the U.K.’s most prestigious songwriting accolade, alongside notable acts Ben Howard and Hozier while Red Earth & Pouring Rain reached #6 in the U.K. album chart. The band has sold almost 500,000 records over the course of their career and after four years

An arresting confluence of soaring melodies, lush harmonies, and driving indie rock, the EP is the band’s most collaborative work yet, bearing the distinctive writing influence and unique sonic sensibilities of all four members (lead singer/guitarist Max Rainer, bassist/vocalist Colton Dearing, guitarist/vocalist Tyler Wimpee, and drummer Justin Kila). Recorded with production mastermind Phil Ek (Father John Misty, Fleet Foxes), ‘Favors’ marks the dawn of a new era for Tulsa rockers Wilderado, as their already-epic sound pushes into more nuanced and mature territory than ever before.

From the slow-and-steady build of ‘You Don’t Love Me” to the explosive power “Siren,” the collection elevates the grandeur and drama of the band’s arrangements without sacrificing any of the grit or muscle behind it. “We wanted big guitars, big cymbals, big drums, big vocals, but we still wanted it to come across pretty,” explains Rainer. Indeed, beauty is the EP’s hallmark: the beauty of radical honesty, the beauty of self-actualization, the beauty of metamorphosis. The songs offer up candid slices of self-reflection, unafraid look critically in the mirror as they juxtapose magnificent musical arrangements with lacerating lyrics and heartrending deliveries, but ultimately, they’re not about judgment at all. Instead, the music celebrates the growth that comes from turning weakness into strength, from pushing beyond the boundaries what previously seemed possible in order to fully become yourself.

‘Favors’ follows a pair of EPs—‘Misty Shrub’ and ‘Latigo’—and a collection of singles released to widespread critical acclaim, with Consequence of Sound hailing Wilderado’s music as “glorious” and Paste lauding its “South-Central Americana-meets-Laurel Canyon vibe.” Praise across the pond was similarly effusive, with NME highlighting the band’s “impressive harmonies” and Clash falling for their “natural grace.” The tunes racked up more than 15 million streams on Spotify and helped the group earn festival performances from Bonnaroo to Sasquatch in addition to dates with Band of Horses, Lindsey Buckingham & Christine McVie, Judah & The Lion, and more.
