Viva La Bear
Viva La Bear are an Alternative Rock band hailing from the Forest Dean area in Gloucestershire. The band consists of five members: Tom V (Vocals), Tom G (Guitar), Steve (Guitar), Vince (Bass) and Alex (Drums). Since their formation in 2018, they've worked tirelessly writing and performing across the South West area. Taking inspiration from the likes of Lower Than Atlantis, Placebo and Taking Back Sunday to create their unique sound. In 2008 the band released two demos titled "Tonight" and "Good Intentions" both reaching over one thousand plays across various streaming platforms. This helped the band secure main stage slots across many local festivals. They released their first single "Just Like Them" in early 2020 and the most recent track "I'd Do Anything" in July coinciding with Father's Day.
Upon joining up with the label Blvnc Records, the band looked to release their next track in early 2021, along with a series of live performances. Viva La Bear then released their next instalment of music on January 15th, 2021, with the single “Feel The Same” just as the world went into turmoil. Following the ease of the pandemic, Viva La Bear returned to the stage with various outings around the South-West, before returning to the drawing board and the studio to record the newest riff trickery anthems "Here" and "Better Company". The first singles "Here" was released on November 12th, with the follow up of "Better Company" being subsequently released on August 5th 2022. With both tracks adding to the reception of much appraise, adding to the band's vast array of already talented tracks. Viva la Bear is now looking to hit the road again and take these energetic tunes back to the stage.
