Having apparently pared down their roster from three members to two, alt-folk duo Bear’s Den have announced details of their upcoming new LP ‘Red Earth & Pouring Rain’, along with a list of autumn tour dates in the UK. The new album, titled ‘Red Earth & Pouring Rain’, was recorded in Wales with Ian Grimble once again at the production helm and is due for release on the 22nd of July. No music from the album has been made available yet, but the band have offered up a tantalisingly brief teaser clip, which you can view at the bottom of the page.
Bear’s Den will give a small but lucky group of fans an early preview of the album with an already sold-out show at London ICA on the 7th of June.
