ALBUM RELEASE // Bear In Heaven ‘Time Is Over One Day Old’ Out Now Worldwide, On Tour Starting August 20th In Philly

Following up 2012’s LP I Love You, It’s Cool, Bear In Heaven is back with a new album Time Is Over One Day Old out now on Dead Oceans / Hometapes. The dense and beautifully layered album brings back Jon Philpot‘s smooth vocals and evocative synth, Adam Wills delectably groovy bass lines, and new drummer Jason Nazary to provide the percussion structure to the whole complex affair. The band is looking to tear your ears a new consciousness so you can preview the album by watching the gorgeous night time snapshot of NYC in their “Time Between” video above plus “Autumn” on Soundcloud.

Get the new album now via SC Distribution, Amazon, iTunes, your local record store.

Critics praise the new album:

“Bear In Heaven have gone back to what they do best”

The 405

“‘Time Is Over One Day Old’ uses a less is more approach, the understated subtlety of which results in their best album to date”

The Line Of Best Fit

“This is a record that nurtures and works around feeling, clawing its hooks deep wherever you lay most vulnerable. Sensual is most definitely the word.”
