Following on from their top 10 Paper Heart album (hit number 7 in the iTunes rock chart and was featured on Alt Press, Kerrang!, Classic Rock, Upset, Total Guitar etc.) Hunter & The Bear have released their new single 'Skin Tight'
They've just finished touring the UK and managed to sell out ten of their shows. They've been confirmed for next year's Great Escape festival too!
With most rock songs these days being on the longer side, H & B have released three and a half minutes of raw and sexy rock glory. Despite the dirty chords, salacious lyrics the track has a catchy romanticism to it that only rock music can get away with.
Hailed as the “heroes British rock needs right now” and lauded by everyone from Alt Press and Upset to Rhythm and Total Guitar, Hunter & The Bear are busy making raw, melodic and downright thunderous rock cut straight from the heart.
From securing support slots with Eric Clapton, Simple Minds and Van Morrison to selling-out previous headline tours, here is a quartet that grew up on a heavy diet of rock royalty - Biffy Clyro, Foo Fighters and more recently Royal Blood - who make music that is melancholy, expansive and uplifting all at the same time, their powerhouse riffs more than enough to keep rock purists and casual listeners alike satisfied.
Live, this is a band where each song performed threatens to topple over with lightning-charged intensity and in May they released their debut album, ‘Paper Heart’ – ten memorable offerings that have already earned them a legion of dedicated fans.
With all songs written and performed by this group of close friends exclusively, Hunter & the Bear are a real, organic project – one that’s built on pure passion, drive and belief in each other as musicians.
Hunter & The Bear are:
Will (lead vocals, guitar) Jimmy (lead guitar, vocals) Gareth (drums, vocals) Chris (bass, vocals)
