Bear's Den - Best New Bands

New York - Acclaimed U.K. indie-folk band Bear’s Den made its U.S. network television debut on “CBS This Morning: Saturday,” with performances of “Red Earth & Pouring Rain,” “Dew On The Vine” and “Emeralds.”

The songs appear on Bear’s Den’s new album, Red Earth & Pouring Rain, which debuted top 10 in the U.K. and continues to receive critical acclaim. Further more, after a sold-out summer U.S. tour, the band confirms additional dates in January, with stops in New York, Los Angeles, Nashville, Boston, Philadelphia, Austin, and more. Tickets are on pre-sale Tuesday, October 18 exclusively from the band’s website at, before the general on-sale Friday, October 21. See below for a complete list of dates.


Red Earth & Pouring Rain was recorded at Rockfield Studios in Wales with the band’s longtime producer Ian Grimble. Following the amicable departure of guitarist Joey Haynes, Bear’s Den now comprises a six-piece touring unit built around a nucleus of singer-songwriter Andrew Davie and multi-instrumentalist Kev Jones, assisted by touring musicians Jools Owen (brass/drums) and Marcus Hamblett (synths). “Being on the road so much pushes friendships to the limit, and really affects your relationships outside of it. You get extreme highs and lows,” reflects Davie.

The London-based band played music in various incarnations before officially forming in 2012. Bear’s Den developed a cult following in its short existence, as a result of incredible writing, marvelous harmonies, the band’s D.I.Y. approach with custom hand-stamped CDs, and extensive touring. It was only after finding its identity on the road, which was documented in the film Austin to Boston, that the band focused attention on studio recordings. Bear’s Den’s 2014 debut LP Islands was released to widespread international critical acclaim. The band received a 2015 Ivor Novello Award nomination, the U.K.’s most prestigious songwriting accolade, alongside notable acts Ben Howard and Hozier.
