Preacher And BearThe Storm Has Come
The Storm Has Come". That's the title of Preacher and Bears second album. The album will be released in February of 2013, but already the expectations are high on the Gothenburg folk pop duo.
There's been two years since they released their debut album "Suburban Island", partly produced by the legendary Ebbot Lundberg from "The Soundtrack Of Our Lives".
Since then Elin Piel and Fredrik Petterson has taken their time to really emerge as a band.
The playfulness heard on their debut album is still there, but the band has sharpened their knives and taken on a more radical point of view.
The messages are more a smack in the face than a slap at the wrist. Still there are some tracks that completely hit you in the heart with stories of love and longing.
Even though the production is bigger than on the previous album "Suburban Island", you can still hear the trade marked guitar of Fredrik Petterson and the intriguing vocals of Elin Piel.
The tracks build off each other and create a weave of stories about injustice, sadness, love, struggle and hope.
Elin and Fredrik mix complete hopelessness with utter joy. This is one of the bands fortes.
If PJ Harvey and The Cave Singers had a love child, it would probably sound like Preacher and Bear.
For this album they've joined by up and coming Swedish drummer Kajsa Poidnak (Pfemme Records).
Her distinguished timing and drive gives the tracks a whole new dimension. She joined Preacher and Bear for their spring tour in 2012 and will be joining them on the release tour for "The Storm Has Come".
The band has previously traveled Europe and Scandinavia with artists like Declan de Barra, Bobby Baby, Holmes and Winter Took His Life.
But in winter 2013 Preacher and Bear will travels alone and are now preparing for their biggest tour so far.
On tour is where they really got to show what they are made of. The band is mostly known for their vivid live performances that is not just a musical experience but also personal connections.
Their dynamics, timing, charisma and the, sometimes, completely insane talking between songs make them a band really worth traveling far to see.
On stage is where their strengths as musicians and entertainers become obvious. So be aware; The Storm Has Come.
The Storm Has Come includes 10 songs in the genres of Singer songwriter, alt country, Americana & folk music.
The album will be released as Mintpack CD, Vinyl and Digital by Swedish record label Black Star Foundation (Home for artists/bands like: Tiger Lou, Holmes, Declan de Barra, the book of Daniel, Pg.lost, Atlas Losing Grip, Khoma, etc)
