Listen To This Ep (May 2010)



Anytime people join together to make music there are bound to be bumps in the path. The band, Bears Eat Me, knows this very well, but they also know the important thing is to learn from experience on that rocky road.

Bears Eat Me first formed in Fontana, California on July 7th of 2008. The band originally thought of naming themselves “Salmon” after an inside joke from high school but after discovering the name was already taken by numerous other bands, the group decided to go a more creative route and came up with the name “Bears Eat Me”. Shortly after the groups formation, they hit turbulent waters as band mates began dropping out of the group. After two years, two singers, two rhythm guitarists, two bassists, and a drummer the band has finally ended up with their current line up containing Mara Morgue as the vocalist, Hippie Ray on rhythm guitar, Bryan Axe on lead guitar, and our in the process of trying out bassists and drummers. Though the constant switching out of band members may seem like a negative on the outside, the group has only grown stronger because of it. As one fan said shortly after Mara joined the group, “Every time you guys get a new singer they just get better and better.” This seems to be the running theme with every new addition.

Bears Eat Me is very active in their local music scene in Fontana. Recently at a show one of the band members was told by another group “we kept seeing your name everywhere and kept wondering, who is Bears Eat Me?” If the group is not playing at venues like the Glasshouse in Pomona or The Knitting Factory in Los Angeles, then you will most likely find them playing local events at bars, warehouses, backyards, ice cream shops, coffee shops, or any other location you can think of. Bears Eat Me recently released their first five song EP entitled “Listen to This” on May 22 of 2010. The most well received song from the album, “The End of a Fairytale”, was the first song written with Mara in the band and is written about the true story of the vocalists battle for her first love and her attempts to move forward without him in her life. This song has also received some radio play on the local radio station X 103.9 during their “Pay to Play” event, and on Indie 104 and Flashrock.

All the songs on the album are about powerful moments or battles in the artists' lives and this passion for their music translates into an energy filled show. After every show, the group always gets comments about how much energy the performers have. Mara has often been described as “getting in your face” or “scary” or “crazy” or “emotive”.

Bears Eat Me has recently been focusing on playing shows and writing new music. They recently premiered two new songs entitled “Monster” and “Letter to the King” at local shows though neither have been recorded yet. They also have a couple of songs in the works including one entitled “A Fool’s Gold” and two other unnamed tracks. Mara says, “Give us another year, and we'll probably have a full length cd to show for it!” So be on the look out for Bears Eat Me, because if you aren't looking out for them, the bears may just eat you!
