London five piece Eliza and the Bear are set to release new single ‘Make It On My Own’ on June 7th through Capitol Records.
Recorded during recent album sessions at the known Blackbird Studios in Nashville with producer Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Of Monsters and Men, James Bay), ‘Make It On My Own’ (June 7th, Capitol Records) is a huge leap forward for Eliza and the Bear.
Marking a clear evolution to a sound rich in defiant sing-a-long choruses, rousing trumpets and thumping arena sized drums, it’s a bold, confident statement by a band who have clearly found their space in the world. In James Kellegher’s own words
‘Make It On My Own’ came relatively late in the writing process for the album. I think we finished the song in the same week we left for the studio. It’s about making a change in something, be it your entire life, or even in the smallest thing, a tiny change can make a huge difference. But also about self-worth, knowing that you have value and that you can do anything.’
Having spent two years cutting their teeth touring the length and breadth of the country with the likes of Imagine Dragons, Paramore and AWOLNATION, 2014 saw Eliza and the Bear – James Kellegher (lead vocals, guitar), Chris Brand (Bass), Paul Kevin Jackson (Drums), Callie Noakes (vocals, keyboards) and Martin Dukelow (vocals, lead guitars) – sell out their own 22-date headline tour, culminating in a sold out show at The Islington Academy.
Eliza and the Bear will also be announcing their own headline tour in the coming weeks. In the lead up to the release of ‘Make It On My Own’, they will be supporting Twin Atlantic on the following tour dates:
5th May – Albert Hall – Manchester
7th May – Brixton 02 Academy
8th May – Birmingham 02 Academy
9th May – Glasgow – SSE Hydro
