Colored Copies Are Limited / Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Bear Vs Shark, the Detroit mainstays who disbanded in 2005 after two tremendous albums, have announced a remastered limited double vinyl re-issue of both of those LP's - Right Now, You're in the Best of Hands and Terrorhawk - via their original label home Equal Vision Records. With new cover art by BVS singer Marc Paffi the 2LP reissue will arrive in September 2016 on colored 180g vinyl with a gatefold jacket.
Bear Vs Shark hit the primal sweet spot for a lot of listeners. Not too pissed. Not too anthemic. Not too nostalgic and not too instrumentally self-indulgent. The adrenaline-pumping, aerodynamic rock tunes of BVS feel like a secret formula of sorts because it was something heavy, something intense, something fast, that never wore you down. It was acrobatic and, at times, aerobic, but never tired you out. It was contemplative and blunt but never exhausted your emotional core.
