BearX's Our Friend, Hope is on 60+ radio stations as of Jan 2012
Bear Crossing is a Rock/ Alternative trio formed in Chesapeake VA.
Supporting major-label artists: Minus The Bear, Scary Kids Scaring Kids, Rogue Wave, and Fanfarlo; Bear Crossing was set to embark on their 52 date cross-country tour in March 2011 to coincide with their full-length album release, "Our Friend, Hope."
DISASTER STRIKES! Jason, the singer/guitar player, paralyzed his left vocal chord. The band, put out for more than a half year had to postpone shows, cut one song from their album, and had to finish tracks with one vocal cord. Jason went under the knife and made a full recovery in September 2011. With the front man prime as a peach, Bear Crossing had their long awaited SOLD OUT CD Release show for "Our Friend, Hope."
The war is approaching; the choice is to resist oppression or fall to slavery. "Our Friend, Hope" is the culmination of raging guitars, pounding bass, aggressive drums, and anthem-crazed vocals. The conceptual full-length album melds the foundation of rock and modern story-telling by following a heroes journey through themes of war, tragedy, love, courage, and hope.
This album is for fans of Muse, The Mars Volta, and Thrice.
Bear Crossing is not a hipster band (flannel aside), no drug problems or terminal diseases and you won't smear your eyeliner listing to their songs; their approach is to bring the rage and connect with the crowd.
With a year of strife behind them, Bear Crossing is showing no signs of surrender.
"Let's get Awesome!"
