2012 – present (6 years)
London, England, United Kingdom
Bear’s Den are Andrew Davie (guitar, vocals), Joey Haynes (guitar), and Kev Jones (drums, bass). Since forming in 2012, the London based trio have built a fervent fanbase through their live shows and a dedicated DIY aesthetic that originally saw them self-fund tours and sell hand printed CDs direct to fans at gigs.
In two short years, Andrew, Joey and Kev quietly went from pub shows to a jaw dropping headline gig at the Brixton Electric in front of 1500 people. Their appearance at Mumford & Sons’ Summer Stampede saw them play in front of a 60,000 strong, sold out crowd in London’s newly landscaped Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. In the US, the band played support tours with Mumford and Sons and Daughter and festival shows on the Gentlemen Of The Road Stopover Tour in both the US and Canada.
Bear’s Den released their new single, Elysium, in July on Communion Records/Caroline. An elegiac paean to the redemptive power of friendship and the song that marks the point Bear's Den began the transition from best kept secret to your new favourite band.
Single Above the Clouds of Pompeii was released in October 2014 just before the band's long awaited, stunning debut album Islands.
