Eliza And The Bear to Launch Debut Album with Live Performances at Fopp

Eliza And The Bear will be performing live acoustic sets and signing copies of their brand new self-titled debut album, set for release on 8 April 2016, in specially selected hmv and Fopp stores across the UK and appearing at Fopp Manchester on 15th April 2016.


Eliza and the Bear have returned with yet another glowing anthem, Friends, the latest single to be lifted from their eponymously-titled debut album, released 8 April 2016 on Capitol Records.


The track tells an uplifting story about the importance of friends and family, combined with gleaming guitars and stadium-sized optimism. Friends is the perfect example of how the Essex quintet create, life-affirming songs.


The track follows previous Radio 1 playlisted singles Lion’s Heart, which ‘led to roaring singalongs at festivals’ (The Telegraph) and It Gets Cold (The Independent “hard to get away from its magnetic groove”).


Other stand out tracks include beautifully broody, strings accompanied I’m On Your Side, fan favourite Brother’s Boat and Make It On My Own (Evening Standard “Its mighty thud puts it alongside big-selling Americans such as AWOLNATION and Imagine Dragons".)


During the making of the album, the band decamped to Nashville to work with three times Grammy Award-winning producer Jacquire King (Kings Of LeonOf Monsters and MenJames Bay).


hmv and Fopp’s Events & Local Marketing Planner, Laura Thomas said, “We are thrilled that Eliza And The Bear have chosen to launch their debut self-titled album with hmv and Fopp.  They are a young band who already have a huge following in the UK and we look forward to hosting them at the Live Performances and signings.”


We wanted to get out of London, get away from distractions and concentrate on making the songs as good as they could be,” says Eliza And The Bear frontman James Kellegher, “Jacquire brought in a string quartet, a gospel choir and a couple of brilliant brass players.”


Fri 15th April, 5.15pm: Fopp Manchester, 19 Brown Street, Manchester, M2 1DA


Entry is granted on a first come first served basis with a copy of the album
