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.”
'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.”
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 of nonstop touring has sold over 100,000 tickets worldwide including global festival appearances at Bonnaroo and Glastonbury.
