Thank You Canada!
56 shows in 49 venues in 5 different provinces. We played the Commodore. We released our first EP. We bought a big blue van and went half way across the country with it. 2019 was one hell of a year and we're honoured to have shared it with all of you.
In case you missed it, here are some of our favourite moments from our last tour to Ontario and back. Can't wait to do it again in the spring (more details on that to come!)
Chase The Who?
Inspired by the greatest music of the past century, Chase The Bear draws inspiration anywhere from the incredible songwriting of The Beatles, the hard-hitting instrumental proficiency of Led Zeppelin, and some modern rock for good measure.
Since their inception in 2017, Chase The Bear has won 1st place in Live Acts’ Best in Vancouver competition, been on several Canadian tours, and opened for Canadian rock giants The Trews at Vancouver's historic Commodore Ballroom - all before releasing their debut EP in February 2019.
A band of brothers, Chase The Bear shows unrivaled chemistry on stage, further showing that this isn’t a rock n’ roll revival band - this is a new animal that ends with an explosion of talent, passion, and youthful energy.
For the rest of 2019, the band will be recording select songs from their 30+ song repertoire, due for release in 2020.
Onstage, their tasty harmonies, raw musicianship, and incredible amount of energy have inspired reviews saying,
“You must see this band. Let’s help them establish a core base and turn this into their proper new home … Chase The Bear were relentless from start to finish.”
-Jon Williams (The Zone 91.3, Victoria)
"Chase The Bear is the reason it's worth going to see the opening acts"
-Mariko Margetson (Vancouver Weekly)
“One kickass rock band”
- Colin MacDonald (The Trews)
