Always planning the next trip, Bear Hands have no time for taking breaks. In February they embarked on a month long tour with We Were Promised Jetpacks, keeping busy on the road, recording live sessions for the likes of Daytrotter and KEXP. Concluding at SXSW with half a dozen shows including Cantora Records Showcase, Harley Davidson, Baeble.com while charming the likes of Justin Timberlake.com and Limewire, This is Fake and Gibson Guitars blogsite who selected their live show “as 1 out of 5 Acts” not to miss at SXSW along with Sharon Jones, The XX, Andrew WK and Spoon.

They returned back home to Brooklyn for a sold out headlining slot at Glasslands and left the following day kicking off their tour with Passion Pit. In mid-April they will be joining As Tall As Lions and make a few headline stops in LA and Seattle. Plus, they’ll be playing some parties during Coachella in Palm Springs.

All of this, and a brand new live DVD on its way in preparation of their widely anticipated full length debut featuring 3 brand new songs, plus their current single “What A Drag”.

The live DVD is a 4 song set Performed Live at Cantora Records + The Rumpus Room in Brooklyn in January 2010. Directed and edited by Bear Hands own Ted Feldman, with camera work Ray Concepcion, Ben Altarescu and Andrei Schwartz. Ray Concepcion’s work can be seen quite regularly on Pitchfork’s Tunnel Vision and Forkast. The DVD will be released later this Spring.

Both the live video DVD in addition to the Live Audio MP3s will all be available for sale @ bearhandsband.com and cantorarecords.com via iTunes.

Sexy, funky, blisterous indeed! If this is the kind of live magic that is conjured in one live session you won’t believe your ears when you get to hear the full length coming soon.

Bear Hands are truly the story of hard work and dedication, they earned it the good old-fashioned way by working their backsides off for it.
