BEARS IN HAZENMORE ANNOUNCE FALL TOUR
IN SUPPORT OF DEBUT ALBUM ATLAS – OUT NOW
Toronto, ON – September 7, 2018 – Regina alt-rockers, Bears In Hazenmore, are taking their debut album, Atlas, on the road. Kicking off on October 19th at home in Regina, the band will bring their signature atmospheric soundscapes and ambient rock music to audiences across eastern Canada through the fall. See below for a full list of dates, and have a look at the live performance video of the captivating album track, Caves.
"The Star Maps Tour has us seeing parts of the country we’ve never been to before,” the band comments. “We're taking the route through Northern Ontario for the first time, as well as heading back to some classic stops including a long-awaited return to Winnipeg, and then on to favourites such as Toronto, Windsor, Sarnia, and Montreal. We’re looking forward to breaking new ground and playing legendary tour stops like Thunder Bay and Sudbury."
Released on June 15th, Atlas draws listeners in with intimate lyrics and enticing builds, featuring ten songs centred thematically on memory and its tie to specific locations. Recorded in their home province in the Spring of 2017 with Justin Bender at Blue Door Recording, the album pushes the band’s ever-evolving sound with intertwining guitar and horn textures, contemplative lyrics, and irregular time signatures.
Operating as a five-piece ensemble that includes extensive use of reverb-saturated guitars, dynamic percussion, and ethereal brass and woodwind textures, they draw strong influences from and comparisons to groups such as City and Colour, Aidan Knight, and Bon Iver. The five members, Brady Frank (lead vocals/guitar/keys), Dana Rempel (bass/sax), Darnell Stewart (guitar), Tanner Wilhelm Hale (drums/vocals), and Dalton Lam (trumpet), all have their roots in Swift Current, Saskatchewan, where they met through different musical endeavours.
