Belgian progressive hardcore mentalists BEAR have signed a deal with up-and-coming U.K. label Basick Records. The band's new album, "Noumenon", will be released in October.
Check out an album teaser below.
Mixing extreme chaos with dazzling technical flair is the four-piece's forte, and Basick boss Nathan Barley Phillips was compelled to sign them after witnessing their off-the-scale live show at last year's Euroblast festival.
Barley comments: "I had the misfortune of a near-death experience when I chanced upon BEAR playing at a small venue in Germany last year… It's not often that I genuinely fear for my own safety when watching a band, but experiencing BEAR's live show is about as close to armageddon as it gets. I'm thrilled to welcome them to Basick."
Adds BEAR: "We are insanely stoked to announce that BEAR is now an offical member of the Basick Records family: Effective Immediately!!! Joining their already immpressive roster is a dream come true and we can't wait to drop our next beast of a record everywhere."
BEAR is confirmed for Eierfest in Belgium on August 23 as well as another appearance at Euroblast festival in Germany on October 11, and with tour announcements in the pipeline, expect a stage near you to be decimated very soon.
