China Bears have announced a number of headline shows and festivals around the UK, with some dates already sold out! So we are thrilled they are coming to the Boileroom this November.
Formed in Somerset by twins Ivan and Frazer, the line up was complete after meeting James and Dean at university in Guildford. China Bears have played some notable support slots for bands such as: Genghar, The Districts, To Kill A King, Geneva, The Howl & The Hum and many more. They were also selected as the official artist for legendary tastemaker festival SXSW 2020 in Austin, Texas and made NPR’s acclaimed top 50 must see artists of the festival.
After self-releasing 3 singles China Bears teamed up with Fierce Panda Records for the release of their debut EP ‘I’ve Never Met Anyone Like You’, picking up attention from the likes of BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 1, BBC Introducing, Gigwise and Radio X to name a few. Last year the quartet performed a live session for Steve Lamacq on BBC Radio 6 Music in support of a trio of singles; ‘I’m Not Eating Like I Used To’, ‘Statue Still’ and ‘Jolene’, which were released throughout 2020.
