Sunderland in the North East of England’s Bear Trade is putting out the 2nd full -length now on cd format, too. Greg Robson (vocals/guitar) goes into some detail about the interim between albums and the inspiration behind ‘Silence Unspeakable’: “Since the last record (2014’s debut full length ‘Blood & Sand’) a lot has happened. There have been deaths, break-ups, marriages, births. You could actually restructure the tracks and form a loose narrative of the last three years of my life, but although there are a lot of quite sad songs on the album, don’t worry it all had a very happy ending. As with the last offering, the songs have me writing from the heart and from personal experience. They look at finding love. Relationships and family. Finding your way, and saying goodbye. In short they are about life.” This is the must have for the one who’s into UK melodic punk rock like Leatherface/HDQ and gruff punk like Iron Chic. Oof.
