Bear In Heaven Releasing New LP, ‘I Love You, It’s Cool,’ In April

    Brooklyn’s Bear In Heaven has spent the past nine months working on what will be the follow-up to their 2009 break-out album, Beast Rest Forth Mouth. And anyone looking for more of that record’s darker moments will apparently be surprised when they hear the new LP, I Love You, It’s Cool.

    As frontman Jon Philpot explained to Spin: “There’s more groove, less doom [on the new album]. Like Don Henley, but more psychedelic.” Interesting. It’s also described as more harmonious and faster than its predecessor.

    You can stream the album, which has (hilariously) been slowed down 400,000 percent, here. It drops April 2. View the band’s tour dates below.
