The Lion The Bear The Fox prowl over to Char’s

The Lion The Bear The Fox will play Char’s Landing in Port Alberni, on Tuesday, March 24.

To say this is an exciting time for B.C. folk/rock trio The Lion The Bear The Fox is an understatement.

Christopher Arruda (The Lion), Cory Woodward (The Bear) and Ryan McMahon (The Fox) have just signed a publishing deal with CSS Rights Management in Toronto, been accepted to Canadian Music Week in Toronto for the second year in a row and are getting closer to releasing a new album with every day that passes.

The band is about to embark on a slew of western Canadian tour dates, as well as a trip to Toronto for Canadian Music Week in May, to share new music from its upcoming full-length album. Before heading east, The Lion The Bear The Fox will play 10 shows on Vancouver Island, including a return to one of its favourite Island venues, Char’s Landing in Port Alberni, on Tuesday, March 24.

Over the winter, The Lion The Bear The Fox worked with Vancouver-based producer Nygel Asselin on a couple of songs for a new full-length album, and the band will continue to record new songs in the coming months. It’s been a year and a half since Arruda, Woodward and McMahon released their self-produced debut EP, We’d Be Good Men, and they’re eager to share their new songs with Port Alberni music fans, who will be among the first to hear them.

Since Arruda, Woodward and McMahon first joined forces in May 2012, they’ve brought together three distinct, equally powerful voices and songwriting approaches. They were named a Top 20 Finalist in the prestigious B.C.-wide Peak Performance Project in 2013, less than a year after forming, and they’ve played to many sold-out crowds as they’ve toured across Western Canada, making new fans at every turn with their big voices, honest songs and passionate performances that both entertain and engage.

And now, with a batch of new songs and a renewed excitement for hitting the road together, The Lion The Bear The Fox can’t wait to keep building the momentum in 2015.

It all starts this month on Vancouver Island, and Port Alberni fans can hear The Lion The Bear The Fox’s new music Tuesday, March 24 at Char’s Landing at 4815 Argyle St. at 8 p.m.

Advance tickets for this show are $15 at Char’s Landing, Gayle’s Fashions and Rollin Art Centre. Out-of-towners can call 250-730-1636 to purchase tickets through Visa, Mastercard or debit. Tickets will also be sold at the door for $18. For more information, visit www.charslanding.com.
