Bear Trade Stream New Track 'If Stoic Was Normal' Plus Tour With Iron Chic In May 2014 [Listen]

North Eastern punks Bear Trade have unveiled another track from forthcoming debut album 'Blood And Sand'.

A positive-vibe-inducing but sometimes cynically bittersweet, sharp and snappy journey through Bear Trade's enviably simple outlook on life is evidenced in every track. Throughout the album, the band's roots in the North East of England and their everyday life experiences there are more than apparent, both through Robson's undeniable vocal accent and through lyrical content. 'Don't Forget You're Going To Die' is about how weird it is living in an industrial town 20 years after said industry was removed. As Robson says of the local folk, "Everyone is pissed off and they don't know why."  Bassist Lloyd Chambers chimes in "I guess the lyrics and way they are sung are unashamedly in the local tongue and pronunciation."

The record drops just as Bear Trade head off on tour with Long Islanders Iron Chic who they fondly refer to as their brothers.
