DHP Presents Bear's Den

Bear’s Den will release their Ivor Novello nominated single ‘Above The Clouds Of Pompeii’ on July 27th. Watch the official video on YouTube here.

‘Above The Clouds Of Pompeii’ is taken from Bear’s Den’s debut album ‘Islands’ which is out now on Communion Records / Caroline International, and was written by the band’s Andrew Davie.

Speaking of the song, Davie says, “It’s an amalgamation of many of my feelings growing up. Trying to connect with people and also my first times dealing with loss. My Dad and I went on a trip to Pompeii when I was really young and I was thinking about it one day, nostalgically and also kinda painfully remembering stuff from when I was a kid and trying to communicate how I felt back then. That Pompeii trip made a huge impression on me and seemed to be the right place and time in my childhood for me to try and articulate all those things.

“I wrote Above The Clouds Of Pompeii a few years ago, in the back of a VW camper van, on Bear's Den's first ever tour in America. Ben Howard, Nathaniel Rateliff and The Staves were also on that tour and it was hugely inspiring to be surrounded by so many talented songwriters night after night.”

A feature-length music documentary of this tour, ‘Austin To Boston’, will get its global release on 12th June via Netflix and iTunes, fresh from a successful run of screenings at international film festivals. The film was directed by James Marcus Haney (No Cameras Allowed), produced by Ben Lovett (Mumford & Sons) & Ty Johnson (Sideshow Alley), and narrated by Gill Landry (Old Crow Medicine Show).

Watch the trailer for ‘Austin To Boston’ here.

Bear’s Den will embark on a European headline tour this October 2015, culminating with a previously announced show at London’s Roundhouse on 27th October. Tickets go on general sale on Friday 5th June at 10am.

The new dates follow the band’s completely sold out tour earlier in the year where numerous venues upgraded due to ticket demand.

And watch the band performing ‘Think Of England’ live in front of a sold out homecoming crowd at Shepherd’s Bush Empire on YouTube here.

Bear’s Den now have a busy summer of US and European festival appearances ahead of them, including Glastonbury, Citadel, and Reading & Leeds festivals in the UK.
