Islands, the highly anticipated debut LP from critically acclaimed British trio Bears Den, will be released October 21 on Communion Records. The new album follows their March 2014 EP Without/Within, which was praised by Rolling Stone as “heartfelt, shimmering and adventurous.” A live video of the band performing “Bad Blood,” a new song off the record, is streaming now at NYLON (http://bit.ly/1q1za8F). “Bad Blood,” along with “Above the Clouds of Pompeii,” is now available for immediate download with iTunes pre-order of Islands(http://bit.ly/1p1L5OB).

Islands was produced by regular collaborator Ian Grimble (Travis, Daughter, Manic Street Preachers) and includes tracks off the band’s 2013 EP Agape (ag-ah’-pay) as well as new, never-before recorded songs. The album was recently teased in the form of the video for the song “Elysium” which premiered at NPR as a “First Watch” (view here: http://n.pr/1vZddX8). The video has since gone viral, receiving nearly 400,000 views.

Furthermore, the band will embark on a North American tour this fall, including appearances during CMJ Music Marathon in New York City. Fan pre-sale will begin Wednesday, August 27 with general on-sale starting Friday, August 29. More details below.

Andrew Davie (vocals, guitar), Joey Haynes (vocals, banjo) and Kevin Jones (vocals, drums) make up Bear’s Den. The London-based trio played music in various incarnations before officially forming the band in 2012. They developed a cult following in their short existence as a result of their writing, harmonies, D.I.Y. approach with custom hand-stamped CDs and extensive worldwide touring. It was only after finding their identity on the road that the band focused their attention on studio recordings.
