Bear's Den Premieres Lead Single LAUREL WREATH Today

Acclaimed U.K.-based band Bear's Den premieres their lead single "Laurel Wreath" today; listen/share the track here: https://found.ee/BDWreath. "We're hugely excited to be releasing 'Laurel Wreath' into the world today. It's a song about vulnerability and courage and the need for connection that runs through the whole album," says Andrew Davie (lead vocals, guitar). The track is taken from their highly anticipated third albumSo that you might hear me, which is set for release on April 26 via Rounder Records.

Last week, the band released an original podcast series featuring members Davie andKevin Jones (vocals, drums, bass, guitar). The series, hosted by L.A.-based podcaster and the band's former tour manger Danny Carissimi, takes an intimate dive into their new record and includes in-depth conversations about each song, their recording process and what it's like to release a record in 2019. The podcast's episodes will air weekly leading up to the album's release. Fans can listen to the first two episodes and subscribe to the podcast here: https://found.ee/BDStymhmpodcast

The group's previously released songs, "Fuel on the Fire" and "Blankets of Sorrow," are out now to critical praise-The Independent says, "['Fuel on the Fire'] adds glitchy beats to traditional rock instrumentation, all thrumming beneath frontman Andrew Davie's sonorous vocals," while The Wild Honey Pie furthers, "...it is obvious from these new singles from the group that their sound is evolving but keeping what has magnificently worked for the band." 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.

Band members Davie and Jones explain, "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'sMarathon 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 on 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.
