Bear's Den have announced a festive new EP, 'Christmas, Hopefully'.
Due on 1st December via Communion Records, it features three new songs: the title-track, 'Favourite Patient' and 'Berlin Pt II', a sequel to their 2019 Christmas song.
The band explain: "It's been an incredibly strange and difficult year for all of us. What Christmas stands for couldn't be more at odds with the idea of lockdown or a tier system and the idea of potentially not being able to share that time with friends and family. Christmas can also be quite a challenging and difficult time of year for a lot of people even when there isn't a pandemic going on.
"I wanted to talk about my thought processes and feelings around this time of year and some of the difficulties and anxieties that I have experienced in the past and this year. The central lyric is "I hope you find some peace of mind, this Christmas, hopefully" - I think that line pretty much sums the song up. Hopefully we can all be together this Christmas but if not hopefully we can find some happiness and hope in spite of all the shitty challenges this year continues to present."
