Bearsuit are an art-rock/dance/punk band from Norwich, UK.
Dancepunk five-piece Bearsuit will unleash their eagerly anticipated album The Phantom Forest on March 14 on Fortuna POP! The 12-track long-player heralds a fierce new sound for the band, who have swapped violins, flutes and horns for dirty synths, urgent guitars and infectious beats in the light of a dramatic line-up change. With a sprinkling of sonic dust from big-time producer Gareth Parton (The Go Team, Breeders, Foals) the band have created a perfectly off-the-wall pop masterpiece. The next single from the album will be the dancefloor smasher When Will I Be Queen? due for release in Feburary.
The polished disco-synth debut single Please Don't Take Him Back was playlisted on BBC 6Music in October, as well as being hotly tipped in the music press including Artrocker and Clash Magazine. Weeks later and their second release A Train Wreck was rated an NME Top 10 Download. The band lead into 2011 having secured a profile slot at the SXSW festival in Texas for Huw Stephens' Radio 1 showcase.
