Bear In Heaven
Australian Tour February 2011
Civil Society is proud to announce that Brooklyn’s Bear In Heaven will tour Australia for the first time in February 2011, in a unique double bill with The Antlers, also from Brooklyn. Having only recently released their second studio album ‘Beast Rest Forth Mouth’, Bear in Heaven have emerged as one of the most acclaimed breakthrough acts of the last 12 months. Bear In Heaven and The Antlers will be supported in both headline shows by Sherlock’s Daughter.
Since of ‘Beast Rest Forth Mouth’, Bear In Heaven have been taking sonic strides unlike any in their history. The album received universal acclaim throughout the blogosphere, being listed by many as one of the best releases of the year, including Pitchfork’s ‘Best New Music’ in 2009.
In terms of their live show, Bear In Heaven’s already heavily textured and dreamy sound becomes even more celestial – entering into a vast psychedelic landscape where vocals become dreamier and classic guitar screams are swallowed by vintage synth sounds that were presumed lost in the 1970’s. Don’t miss your chance to watch these sonic explorers work their magic at 2011’s Laneway Festival.
