What is now known as one of Canada’s most active and promising act started off very simply. Montreal’s indie-folk septet Bears of Legend were not anticipating any career when one of their videos went viral on Facebook. Since then, a large audience got into their inventive, catchy and magical folk-rock songs. In 2012, Bears of Legend released their first album called « Good Morning, Motherland. ». Pushed by this viral video, the band then embarks on a huge concert tour of more then 200 dates. While playing from small venues to main stages on major festivals, Bears of Legend works silently on a new album and releases « Ghostwritten Chronicles » on may 2015, only a week after finishing their previous tour. Acclaimed by critics and international press, Bears of Legend starts touring in Europe for the first time and a strong relationship begins to occur. Canada, Belgium, France, Holland, Italy and finally Germany welcomes the band for numerous concerts and Bears of Legend finishes another massive tour in august of 2018 with concerts at Rudolstadt Festival, Dranouter Festival, Brussels Summer Festival, Festival d’été de Québec, Festival International de Jazz de Montréal, l’Inter-Celtique de Lorient, Musique du Bout du Monde de Crozon and much more.
Bears of Legend lately announced a massive tour schedule following their new album release. A surprising, energetic and modern album called « A Million Lives ». Still playing ancient instruments such as the cello, the accordion and the mandolin, « A Million Lives » now reveals a more accessible side of their music while preserving their introspective vibes, their surprising dynamics, their inventive musical arrangements and their breathtaking vocal harmonies.
Now powered for the first time by strong titles for international radio, Bears of Legend is embarking on their biggest adventure to date with this energetic, inventive and audacious yet accessible new album! Inspired by a rather heavenly and introspective dimension, the band takes you lyrically on a modern and modest spiritual quest. Using true stories, let yourself be told how their interpretation of some signs of life left in their path has charted a new road to greater and more lasting happiness.
