The new single arrives as the London duo and their full live band embark on an extensive European headline tour. The UK leg alone will take in Belfast, Exeter, Oxford, Cardiff, Sheffield, Newcastle, Glasgow, Manchester, Nottingham, Leeds, Southampton, as well as London’s Hammersmith Apollo, and tickets for all dates are rapidly selling out. Full European listings below (UK dates in bold).
By the end of this current tour, Bear’s Den will have played close to 80 shows around the world since the release of ‘Red Earth & Pouring Rain’. The video for ‘Greenwoods Bethlehem’ captures just some of the band’s non-stop touring schedule and features footage from shows in Los Angeles, from festivals across Europe, and from shows in the UK at Manchester’s historic Albert Hall as well as the band’s sold out Brixton Academy show.
Channeling the likes of The War On Drugs and Bruce Springsteen, the anthemic ‘Greenwoods Bethlehem’ has become a firm favourite amongst live audiences and sonically portrays how the band have grown. Recorded with the band’s long-term producer Ian Grimble (Laura Marling, Daughter), ‘Greenwoods Bethlehem’ retains the heartfelt lyrics that have been synonymous with Bear’s Den since day one, set against a powerful backdrop of driving rhythms and emotive melodies.
