Bear Away are a melodic punk rock band from Scarborough, UK. Having formed in early 2019, four good friends and musicians from Yorkshire hardcore bands decided to make the music they all loved. With influences taken from Bouncing Souls and Hot Water Music, through to Menzingers and Iron Chic, they use these styles and add to them, creating their own catchy and powerful brand of melodic punk rock.
In July 2019 they released their first EP ‘Never in the same place’ on CD, cassette and digital through Disillusioned Records and Engineer Records. This has been received very well, with positive feedback from people throughout the music scene, including the review from Razorcake magazine; “Strong and interesting twin guitar work plus a really good vocal performance go a long way to making Bear Away a band to keep an eye on”.
Their second release was in the summer of 2020 in the form of a 7″. The two brand new songs were an overwhelming success, gaining plenty of positive feedback. Both Old Friends and East Coast were accompanied with music videos.
The band are hard at work recording more music to be released in 2021 and will be back playing live ASAP!
