I FIGHT BEARS
Coming at you from Bridgend, home to Funeral For A Friend and Bullet For My
Valentine, South Wales metal beasts I FIGHT BEARS hurl out juggernaut
riffage, imposing vocals, and thunderous beats, that suck you in and spit
you out. Acclaimed for their stout riffs and full throttled vocals, the
alluring crew release a surprising and fascinating rendition of Spandau
Ballet’s song, Gold, as their next single. I FIGHT BEARS rework the 80’s hit
with a divergent tongue-in-cheek introduction before they power into their
signature barrage of cleverly woven explosive riffs and dual vocal attacks.
The single is out via all platforms on Friday 16th November.
Earlier this year, the Welsh heavyweights dropped their self-titled debut
album, sparking glowing comparisons to Lamb Of God, Parkway Drive, and
Killswitch Engage. The record pricked the interest of Metal Hammer, who
placed the band on their cover CD, exclusively streamed the album, and
backed the band with a feature in the magazine. The album was also widely
praised from many acclaimed websites and online sources. I FIGHT BEARS’ live
stock is on the rise too, and supports with the likes of The Word Alive,
Continents, When We Were Wolves, Perpetua and Skies In Motion have only
furthered their growth. The band are set to reach even more new fans when
they soon support metal giants, Bleed From Within.
In regards to their intriguing cover for Gold, Vocalist and bassist Drew
Hamley states about the track: “It started as a fun idea to cover at a party
we were playing at. Chris our guitarist took the original song structure and
tempo and wrote an incredible metal rendition. We played it live a few times
at shows and people loved it. We had to get it released.” I FIGHT BEARS are
currently working hard on follow up material to their debut album. Stay
tuned to their social sites for updates.
