One of the newer bands on the festival circuit this summer is Vancouver's Bear Mountain, who we said we're excited to see at this year's Governors Ball, which goes down in NYC on Randall's Island from June 7-9. Bear Mountain play on the 7th and after that they'll stick around NYC for a show on June 10 at Glasslands with Black Light Dinner Party. Tickets to the Glasslands show are on sale now.
Bear Mountain return to the NYC-area for Camp Bisco in July. On their tour this spring/summer, they'll also be playing Sasquatch, Sled Island, Capitol Hill Block Party, Lollapalooza, ACL, and are going on a string of dates with Bloc Party. All dates are listed below.
When we first wrote about Bear Mountain, we said:
Last year, they released their debut album, XO, which combined club-ready dance tracks, arena sized atmospherics, and an indie pop sensibility in the songwriting. It's a pretty great mix and sounds like it will be totally fun live.You can stream "Two Step" from that album, along with the list of all of their tour dates, below...
