Artist Spotlight: The Bear Season

The Bear Season is an easycore sextet hailing from Montevideo, Uruguay. The band formed in 2010, a year many easycore fans agree was the peak of the genre.

The band’s sound pulls influence from similar bands of the genre including: A Day to Remember, Four Year Strong and Chunk! No Captain Chunk!

Although the band is heavily influenced by the easycore genre, the band draws influence from other genres of rock as well. The band covered Say Anything’s “Woe” back in 2012.

“Woe” is softer material compared to what the band is known for playing. This goes to show the diverse background of The Bear Season.

In addition to the hard hitting, synthesizer driven easycore music the band is known for, The Bear Season makes catchy and beautifully written acoustic music, demonstrated in their single “This Is Not A Test.”

With the plethora of covers the band has made their own, as well as their catchy originals, The Bear Season proves the easycore scene is alive and well in Uruguay. The band has been quite for the majority of 2014, but fans are hopefully The Bear Season will pick up with new music soon.
