Bear in Heaven Announce Another Round of North American Tour Dates, Play Ottawa, Toronto, Vancouver
It wasn't too long ago that we mentioned New York quartet Bear in Heaven as a band that would see some major hype this year thanks to 2009's slow-rising Beast Rest Forth Moth album. Following an early 2010 tour with Cymbals Eat Guitars, the band have dropped another major batch of dates to make sure they really make their mark.

The tour starts in Europe, with that run ending in Brussels on May 13. And just three days later the band will already be playing again, kicking off a four-night U.S. run with Metric. Continuing through the United States, the band will also pop up into our country for three Canadian shows: Ottawa on July 10, Toronto on July 15 and Vancouver on July 24.

When we announced the last batch of Bear in Heaven dates, we noted that there was a good chance they'd be playing much larger venues on this tour. That's not quite the case, as both Toronto and Vancouver will see the band returning to El Mocambo and the Biltmore, respectively. Still, they haven't shrunk in popularity, so don't be surprised if the next time they come to town it's somewhere bigger.
