Chosen by Monk

The Uber Rock Approved stampWe continue to receive a veritable tsunami of video clips – another 150+ of them in the past week alone – being sent our way in a bid to be the latest recipient of the coveted title and virtual gong of being named our favourite…

Believe me, we do watch all of the submissions, and, apart from those which don’t meet our criteria – i.e., no lyric videos, no straight performance clips and no “playthroughs” – most of them are of an extremely high quality, but there can only ever be one winner… And, to that end, this week’s selection comes from ÜR’s birthplace… south Wales.

Bridgend has produced some ferocious bands over the past decade or so, in the shape of the likes of Funeral For A Friend, Bullet For My Valentine and ÜR regulars Those Damn Crows. Now I Fight Bears are poised to be added to that list, with the release next month of their new EP, ‘Liberosis’. Bassist, and clean vocalist, Drew Hamley, told us a wee bit more about the EP, the follow-up to their hard-hitting 2018 self-titled debut album:

“[It] is a culmination of two-three years’ work, demoing, re-writing and re-tooling these 5 songs to a place we are all happy with. This EP, for us, is a step in a new and fresh direction, shifting the overall tuning and re-imagining what I Fight Bears means as a band moving forward.”

For a taste of what to expect, IFB have invited us into their ‘Damaged World’ with this dynamic, if somewhat claustrophobic clip which perfectly complements the song’s feel, tone and message in equal measure:

Until next time, keep ‘er lit, keep ‘er between the hedges and keep on rockin’ and rollin’ with your favourite website \m/
