Set to be released digitally on iTunes and Bandcamp on the 21st of March and physical copies available on the 22nd of March during the launch party at the Esplanade Theatre Studio, the band is excited to share the results of their hopes and dreams. Driving the debut, self titled release is their debut single, 'Premonition', which a music video was recorded for.
Filled with both aggressive, hard-hitting bouts and melodically powerful passages, the 11 track release promises to take the listener on a trip through the vast creative capabilities of the band. The various styles of songwriting reflect this, with tracks like the funky, upbeat 'Cheesecake' drawing a stark contrast to the epics that are 'Valkyrie' and 'Mannequin'.
Produced and recorded over a period of 3 years and a few lineup changes along the way, the album is a result of fortitude and sheer willpower not to let anything get in the way of producing the album. "It was tough, and many times I felt like giving up. But we were stubborn and it paid off," said lead guitarist and co-producer Jayme Lim. Recorded, mixed and mastered by Mark Spencer with co-producers Jayme Lim, Utha Kumanan and Eugene Yip, the album is assured to be aurally pleasant.
Despite not having any prior material out, the band has been playing many music festivals, a testament to their ability as a musical outfit. Examples of stages they have graced include Baybeats 2011, NOISE Singapore 2011, sport b. Asian Music Festival 2011, and a hat-trick of shows for IGNITE! Music Festival where they were invited for 3 consecutive years from 2012 to 2014. With an Asia tour in the works slated to begin in late April, Bear Culture is set to make waves with their debut release.
