Back In Action // Bear In Heaven Share Fader Mixtape, Kick Off Tour Wednesday at Johnny Brenda’s

Bear In Heaven are back in action. They head out on tour tomorrow night, playing Philadelphia’s Johnny Brenda’s. To celebrate, Adam and Jon have put together a Fader mixtape complete with the unreleased Bear In Heaven track, “Greece Sun.” Stream and download the mixtape below and tracklist HERE.

The forthcoming tour includes a stop at Asheville’s Moogfest and The National’s All Tomorrow’s Parties. ERAAS joins for support. See all the tour dates at the end of the post.

“This mixtape is the sound of us deciding whether we should start filling the hole or just dive in. It might be fun, we might not hit bottom. We might fly to the other side of this strange dimension. Will you let us do it? Will you join us?”Jon Philpot

AKRON/FAMILY Featured in All Tomorrow’s Parties Documentary

Look for AKRON/FAMILY in the new documentary All Tomorrow’s Parties, out today in the US. In an out-of-season holiday camp on the coast of England, alternative music festival All Tomorrow’s Parties serves up a heady combination of alternative music, crazy golf and chalet-living; all curated by a single band or artist. This post-punk DIY bricolage uses material generated by the fans and musicians themselves, on a multitude of formats and over the history of ATP, to capture the uncompromising spirit of a parallel music universe. An Akron/Family performance from the festival is featured, along with contributions from artists including Belle and Sebastian, Grizzly Bear, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Animal Collective and more.

AKRON/FAMILY Invited To Play All Tomorrow’s Parties Curated By The Flaming Lips

Following a string of absolute barnburner performances at SXSW 2009, AKRON/FAMILY has been invited by none other than The Flaming Lips to join the line-up of the Lips-curated All Tomorrow’s Parties on Sept. 11-13 in Monticello, New York. Akron/Family will grace the ATP stage on Sept. 12 with names like Animal Collective, Panda Bear, Melvins, Black Dice and Atlas Sound – not bad, not bad at all, gentlemen.

Read all you need to know about the The Flaming Lips-curated All Tomorrow’s Parties (which also includes Suicide playing the entire first album!) by venturing HERE.

Meanwhile, Akron/Family have tours in the U.S., Canada and Europe lined up for the next several months, including a few Spain dates with Wilco, where the Akron gang will be in support of their latest triumph Set ‘Em Wild, Set ‘Em Free.

And see if your hometown is set for total demolition by way of an Akron/Family visit by going RIGHT HERE. Be ready.
