Today, I would like to introduce you to Black Bear Kiss a rock ‘n’ roll quintet from the West Midlands.
Formed in 2016, the band includes Chris Leech (lead vocals), Colin Haden (lead guitar), Rob Jones (guitar) Rich Sach (bass) and Chris Bagnall (Drums).
Their first Spotify release, ‘Hooks’ back in 2018, established their presence as one of Shropshire’s finest up and coming rock bands, they then returned with the release of ‘Secret Side’ only a few months later. The bands dynamic rock sound makes me reminiscent of the great Kasabian, a band which they draw inspiration from. From hard rock n roll to alternative rock, Black Bear Kiss fill their tracks with spine-chilling guitar riffs to catchy songs with anthemic choruses guaranteed to get you singing along as you rock out.
After listening to their first two songs, I put their Spotify on shuffle and embraced the next three releases. I was pleasantly surprised to see ‘Follow Me (feat Leo Golden Child)’ as I remember Leo visiting my high school back in 2015 and giving an inspirational performance.
Priding themselves on the high energy of their live performances; headlining and supporting festivals to playing in Shrewsbury HMV, it’s no surprise the band have attracted a vast following from around the world.
So, with a plethora of upbeat, riffy rock songs on Spotify, you can truly get a taste of Black Bear Kiss. Check them out below:
