ABANDONED BY BEARS - Deliver New Video “So Far Gone”

“So Far Gone,” the track that kicks off ABANDONED BY BEARS’ highly anticipated album is here today. The bands third studio album, Headstorm, is set for worldwide release on August 24, 2018. To coincide with the release, the Swedish punk crew will be serving up old favorites alongside their new tunes on the inaugural Headstorm Tour, kicking off August 24 in Chicago, IL.

Bassist Gustav Eriksson explains the track’s meaning, “This is about coming to your senses after you've gone down the wrong path in life. Whether it is a major life changing mistake or just a small thing to anger you, ‘So Far Gone’ elaborates on how these circumstances make you feel lost and out of place in your current situation. Visually, we wanted to show an interpretation of the lyrics with the slightly funny side of an 80’s adventure movie.”

Fronted by the dual vocal combo of Leon Ekelund and Fredric Andersson, ABANDONED BY BEARS is rounded out by guitarist Jacob Devinder and Max Fahlman on drums. The band released The Years Ahead in 2016 under Victory Records and spent a quarter of that year in the US touring ever possible corner. They returned in 2017 for another taste of America before closing out the year with their first ever tour of the UK.

Due to popular demand, ABANDONED BY BEARS will spend two months circling the US for the first tour supporting Headstorm, starting August 24 in Chicago. The tour ends in Nashville on October 25 and “fans can expect a good mix between the last album The Years Ahead, the new one and even some older, deeper material,” promises Eriksson. “We've put together a good set that will appeal to everyone and can't wait to showcase it. Other than that, we look forward to seeing old friends and faces, make new ones and have a good time like always! Americans are always very friendly and welcoming so we'll probably end up needing surgery on the muscles of our faces to fix the mile-wide grins!”
