Wrapping up a tour with Cage the Elephant, Silversun Pickups, and Foals, the guys from Bear Hands hit the road again with Foals on another highly anticipated tour. After their last successful album Distraction in 2014, Bear Hands released another dynamic and well received album in April called You’ll Pay For This.

The band which has been together for 10 years consists of members Dylan Rau (vocals), Val Loper (bass), Ted Feldman (guitar), and TJ Orcher (Drums). The success behind Bear Hands lies in the unique approach to their musical style. It’s almost impossible to categorize their music into a specific genre because their songs are musically layered with styles that run the gamut of punk, folk, electronica, and rock. Make sure to check out Bear Hands on tour this Fall.
