To celebrate the release of the new album 'Participation Trophy', China Bears visit Kingston to play an in-store set and a signing session.

Debut album by British four-piece China Bears. Official SXSW 2024 showcasing artist..

Originally formed in Somerset by twin brothers Ivan (lead vocals / guitar) and Frazer (lead guitar), the China Bears line up was completed after meeting James (bass) and Dean (drums) at university in Guildford. 'Easy Kill' is the Bears' brand new single, and the first track to be taken from their debut album ‘Participation Trophy’, which will be released on 12th July 2024 via Fierce Panda Records. If melodic diligence counts for anything in what is left of the music industry China Bears are masters of their arty leftfield craft: throughout a series of terrific tours and exquisitely balanced EP releases with names like 'I've Never Met Anyone Like You', 'Statue Still' and 'All That Distance', they have displayed an innate ability to blend the alt.rock rush with the acoustic hush. Whether it’s ripping apart the stage with their misery-anthemic indie or encapturing the room to pin drop silence singing their songs shoulder to shoulder in the middle of the crowd, China Bears have gained recognition for their emotive high energy and intimate performances which have drawn knowing comparisons to The National, Death Cab For Cutie and Frightened Rabbit.
