Bear’s Den have released a surprise new song today (December 9) in advance of their Christmas charity show next week.
The reflective song, ‘Berlin', was written during sessions for the band’s 'Red Earth & Pouring Rain' album and was recorded last month when the band had a short break in a hectic year of touring.
“We're so excited to be sharing 'Berlin' with the world," says
Bear’s Den return to London next week to play at St John’s, Bethnal Green on December 15. All proceeds from the night will go to Support Act, an initiative that supports two refugee charities, Refugee Action and Road To Freedom.
The show, which sold out within 24 hkrs, will see the band perform their own songs and specially arranged Christmas numbers, joined by an orchestra plus other featured performers. Special guests announced so far include: Lucy Rose, Justin Young and Freddie Cowan from The Vaccines, Marcus Foster from Seramic, Matthew & The Atlas and just announced Benjamin Francis Leftwich.
