Bear in Heaven and Cymbals Eat Guitars Join Forces for North American Tour, Play Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal
Following their long-building careers, New York bands Bear in Heaven and Cymbals Eat Guitars (pictured) both released compelling albums in 2009 that will guarantee some major hype in 2010. Bear in Heaven released their Beast Rest Forth Moth full-length, while Cymbals Eat Guitars dropped Why There Are Mountains. Since some people out there might have slept on these excellent records, the bands have teamed up for a North American tour in the spring.

First things first, however, Bear in Heaven will play a handful of U.S. shows in January. Then, March will see them meet up with Cymbals Eat Guitars for a month-long tour. The trek kicks of in Philadelphia, and will include Canadian stops in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal.

Chances are the next time these dudes swing through your town they'll be playing much larger venues, so you might want to hit them up on this round of dates.
