Hello! It’s been a while everyone, we miss you all! We are busy working on new songs in the studio at the moment but on our down time we’ve been looking at old photos and taking a trip down memory lane. It’s been an amazing 6 years or so in Bear’s Den, and we wanted to share some of those moments with you. So, over the next few months prepare yourself for a rock and roll roller coaster of a journey through space and time to the very heart of the Den. Hold on to your hats because we will be posting pictures as awe inspiring as this one for the months to come. Enjoy, Davie and Kev xxx
