MUSIC: BEARS DEN
Bear’s Den are celebrating their new album, ‘Red Earth & Pouring Rain’ and it’s well worth a listen! They have a sound that reminds me of Fleetwood Mac and their new album is an addictive listen..
This week.. they have entered the UK Albums Chart as the week’s Highest New Entry at #6.
The band’s debut album, 2014‘s Islands, was a true slow burning success, just recently reaching Silver sales status in the UK. It achieved this over an 18 month period, slowly building a huge fanbase for the group along with their consistently stellar live shows and wide radio support for the singles, Agape, and the Ivor Novello-nominated Above The Clouds of Pompeii.
Red Earth & Pouring Rain was released last week by Communion, and is off to a flying start internationally, too, with Top 10 chartings just announced in Holland (#5) and Belgium (#9) as well as charting as the second highest new entry in Germany this week (#26), while live dates across Europe and on Bear’s Den’s upcoming US tour are fast selling out.
The band’s Kev Jones told the Official Charts Company on hearing the news today, “We’re overwhelmed by how Red Earth & Pouring Rain has been received this week. We can’t wait to tour the album in the Autumn.”
Bear’s Den head out on their biggest headline tour to date in support of the album in November. UK dates are as follows (for full dates, see www.bearsdenmusic.co.uk
