Eliza and The Bear Announce New Single and Extensive 2016 UK Tour

It Gets Cold, in the night, I’m on my way, I’m on my way back home’ sings Eliza and the Bear frontman James Kellegher with a hopeful urgency on the band’s effervescent new single. ‘It Gets Cold’ is out now through Capitol Records.

Kellegher continues: It Gets Cold is about returning back home after an inconceivable amount of time. It’s about the things you will miss being away from home and the moments in time you miss whilst at home reminiscing. It’s about the romanticism of memories. Lyrically I think It Gets Cold focuses on the journey itself more than the destination, it covers the dangers that you may face, but also the courage you will find in the face of adversity.’

‘It Gets Cold’ is taken from their eponymous forthcoming debut album, due for release on Friday 1st April 2016 on Capitol Records. The album also includes the broody string-laden ‘I’m On Your Side’ and the commanding force of ‘Oxygen’, plus fan favourites that have long been part of the band’s live set, among them ‘Brother’s Boat’, album opener ‘Friends’ and ‘Upon The North’.
