The video for “Above the Clouds of Pompeii,” the lead single from Bears Den’s debut LPIslands, is now streaming worldwide at VEVO (http://po.st/ATCOPVevo). Additionally,CMT Edge is premiering another track from the record, “Magdalene” (http://bit.ly/1vMR1CC).  ;

Islands, due October 21 via Communion Records, is receiving early critical acclaim withNYLON explaining, “even though Bear’s Den maintains classic musical values, that doesn’t mean their work is stuck in the past. With a healthy dose of synth, ivory melodies, reversed guitar loops, and strong drumlines, the band is producing a new, infectious post-modern take on folk.” WFUV also recently chose the single as one of their “Current Favorite Songs.”Islands is available for pre-order now (http://bit.ly/1p1L5OB).

The album 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 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 over 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. 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.
