Eatenbybears are a four-piece math-rock band from Belfast.
Formed in 2010, Eatenbybears have a standard metal set up but with a prominent
violin taking the melodic lead. Their music draws comparisons to Providence’s
Fang Island, as they combine vocals and a technical metal accompaniment to make
a dense and abrasive sound. Eatenbybears have already received acclaim from the
likes of Scottish heavyweights Glasvegas and Radio 1’s Rory McConnell and have
appeared at Electric Picnic festival alongside the likes of Arcade Fire. Their debut album Teeth, featuring the ferocious Vanderhoof is out now – go have a listen.
