We are an indiepop band, and we need your help to release our third album! Join us on a magical sleigh ride through a summer meadow.

UPDATE: 8/22/11

We have a few clips from the new songs to share with you - watch the video!

Hello! 

We are Bears, an indiepop band from Cleveland, Ohio.

And we have a new record!

It is our third, and it's going to be like a magical sleigh ride through a summer meadow.

We recorded the songs at home, but we need your help to mix, master and release it.

In return for your donation, you can have a copy of this new album in your choice of formats + other fun stuff, including tote bags and test pressings!

Kate Pugsley will create the cover art, just as she has done for our other albums.

We will work with Misra Records to distribute and promote the album after its release, but we need a hand getting to that point.

So, will you nice people be kind and help us?  We would really appreciate it!

Love, Bears
