About Bear in Heaven and Mr. Gnome

·    Known for entertaining a crowd while defying musical boundaries, Brooklyn-based band Bear in Heaven emerged in 2003 with their album Tunes Nextdoor to Songs and have delighted listeners ever since. Their sound is ahead of its time with unexpected, futuristic rock music that is written in the present tense but ready to speak to the future. Their latest album, I Love You, It’s Cool, was released in April 2012 following their well-received album, Beast Rest Forth Mouth, released in 2010. Three days after their performance at the Rock Hall, Bear in Heaven will take the stage at Lollapalooza.

·    Inspired by a taste for the surreal, Cleveland’s Mr. Gnome has been creating a singular amalgam of gritty, space-psychedelia since 2005, gaining them an ever-growing cult following across North America and Europe, as well as praise from the likes of Rolling Stone, Paste, Spin, Bust and more.  Singer/guitarist Nicole Barille and drummer/pianist Sam Meister bring an unfiltered approach to their craft, allowing for emotional and sonic variance.  With a nod to the off-kiltered, the constantly touring duo are supporting their third full-length album, Madness In Miniature, which was recorded at Josh Homme’s (Queens of the Stone Age/Them Crooked Vultures) Pink Duck Studios in Los Angeles. While the previous two albums offered mere glimpses, the new album is an all-encompassing gaze into two delicate yet roaring, hypnotic and beautifully disconcerting minds that come together to make sense as one.
