For the Bears Releases Brand New Album 'The Hundred Acres'

Who are the band members and what do they play?
Just me, I do all the producing and vocals

How and where did you get together?
Well, it all started when I was born

What are the band’s main influences?
Misty Edwards, John Thurlow, Lil Wayne, a slew of metal bands, Mac Miller, and a lot more i can’t even think of right now.

Have you played any notable gigs, festivals, or other events? Likewise radio or TV appearances?
We played for a March for Our Lives rally and have done shows all across California but back when the group had actual members but that was a little before our music was put out. By the time music was recorded it was just me.

Do you have any favorable quotes from previous reviews of the band that you’d be happy to share?
Well sadly, no

Where was the single/EP/album recorded and who was involved in its production?
The album was partially recorded at a USO studio in Chicago and partially recorded in a closet at my parent’s house around Christmas time haha!

Is there a particular ethos behind the single/EP/album or any particular music styles or events that inspired it?
Not any particular events, just me feeling like a total screw-up and trying to get right with my God. The style was inspired by taking walks and driving at night while crying hahaha, I really wanted the sound to also capture that mood.

Can you briefly describe what the song/each song is about?
Mixtape Money is the introduction and I’m essentially just being content with my music even though it’s probably not the best quality, I like what I’m doing and that’s what’s important.

Hot as Hell is what really starts the premise, however, it’s about me trying to do my own thing probably cuz I was mad at the world or something but my soul knows it needs something more.

Vampyre is the next part, it’s the events that happened directly after Hot as Hell, essentially the same theme but this time with more introspection I look and question why I’m having doubts.

Stay at Home is me wondering why I even feel how I did in the first place and knowing that how I was feeling at the time wasn’t reality and deciding that I can’t always use the external to fix the internal struggle.

Home Alone Six is battling the main overall issue: loneliness abs depression. The story continues with Have Mercy! And Awful! Where I’m crying out to the man upstairs for help and The Gospel Crusade is receiving said help.
