Introduce Yourselves: Bear, Man Dangerous

What is the name of your band?

Bear, Man Dangerous

What is the genre of music that you play?

Not really any one genre. If you put some shoegaze, post-hardcore, space rock, noise rock, math rock, stoner rock and a pinch of slowcore & Americana into a blender and used what came out to make a sonic Jackson Pollok painting—that’s the best I can do.

Can you give a brief history of the band of how it came together and where it is today?

My other band, Rest as Mutes got shut down by COVID. Not making music made me a bit crazy. So I started to record songs in the back seat of my car in my apartment’s parking garage late into the night early morning. I was limited but songs just would not stop coming into my brain. Now I am able to go back to a studio and my Rest as Mutes band mates are helping me record a series of Bear, Man Dangerous EPs.

What can people expect from your music?

Most of the songs from BMD do not go where you have decided they are going. It’s like you black-out in New Mexico on a Summer night and come to, in February at a bar in Montreal.

What is the best release that folks should check out from your band?

The newest release, Unofficial co-work is a true representation of what Bear, Man Dangerous is as drums, bass and guitars were recorded in a studio and were able to be loud.
