Victory Records Sign Abandoned By Bears, Hear The New Track ‘Good Terms’

Victory Records is thrilled to announce the signing of ABANDONED BY BEARS. Formed in 2012, the Swedish audio crew has worked at breakneck speed mixing electro grooves with the dynamics of hardcore and metal and the tone and emotion from pop-punk. The band will release their full length, The Years Ahead, on April 29th, just as their first US tour is underway.

Hear The Inaugural Track “Good Terms” Exclusively at Rock Sound.

“When Victory approached us we were in shock, we had no clue that they would find us in a small town in Sweden,” muses bassist Gustav Ericksson. “It was a dream come true to be sharing a roster with bands like Taking Back Sunday, Refused and Broadside to name a few.”

On the premiere track, Gustav continues, ”Good Terms” is about hardships and overcoming obstacles in life and trying look at it from a positive point of view. This was one of the last tracks we wrote for the record and we feel that even though it’s not the hardest song we’ve written, our energy is still embedded in it.”

Fronted by the dual vocal combo of Leon Ekelund and Fredric Andersson, ABANDONED BY BEARS is rounded out by guitarist Jacob Devinder and new drummer Max Fahlman. After releasing the 2013 EP Bear Sides and the album When Nothing Goes Right, Go Left!, the bands social channels skyrocketed in popularity. ABANDONED BY BEARS quickly gained fans around the world with their unique fusion of software-triggered beats and classy pop-punk.

“It’s hard to say without sounding cheesy, but it’s amazing how much our fans support us. We can’t wait to get this going and finally be able to meet some of all the amazing people we’ve talked to on the internet during these years as a band. They make us proud to be a part of this.”

ABANDONED BY BEARS’ first call of action will be a US tour this spring to support The Years Ahead. The “Guardians Of Easycore” Tour kicks off April 28th in Pomona, CA and treks North across America, hitting the Midwest and East Coast, before circling through the South and closing in San Diego on June 11th. Joining the six week tour will be For The Win and Settle Your Scores.
