Upon signing with Downport Records, Long Island-natives Bear Success released their debut 9-track LP on July 1st, titled “Brevira”. The album artwork was painted by Colin Frangicetto of Circa Survive. Bear Success is an instrumental progressive/post rock trio that draws influence from modern bands like Explosions In The Sky, A Great Big Pile of Leaves, and Circa Survive as well as classic prog rock like Rush, Yes, and Zeppelin. The music itself is dynamic, moving between tranquil ambient sections and in-your-face progressive grooves. Between the three members, the band fills a wide range of soundscapes and tonalities to keep you on your toes.
Since the release of their full length album, Bear Success has played a number of shows in the New York City and Long Island including CMJ Music Marathon 2015 which included acts like The Wonder Years, Motion City Soundtrack, and The Joy Formidable. They are currently in the works of writing and recording new music after changing lineup members following the release of “Brevira”. You can expect to hear new music by late 2016.
