A band formed in Muncie, IN is working their way into the music scene.

The Bears of Blue River who now resides in Chicago, IL will be out touring for most of early 2010 in support of their new Ep “The Killer Bee Scare” which was engineered and produced with friends, Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s. (Sony/Epic)

The Bears of Blue River will be celebrating the Tuesday, January 26th Release and hitting the road Wednesday, January 20th all the way through the end of March. Their travels will take them all through the Midwest, up and down the East Coast, to the warmth of Florida and through the Gulf of Mexico to Texas for SXSW.
Prominent stops along their travels include a Daytrotter Session in early February, a performance on KARE 11 Showcase MN (NBC) with an average viewing audience of 100,000, a cozy show at Arlene’s Grocery in New York’s Lower East Side for representatives from Sony, lead Music stories in the circulated Midwest entertainment rag NUVO, as well as Redeye and Metromix features, greeting the audience of 2,000 locals for the Ghent Bar Tour in Virgina, and a wide ranging, eclectic mix of venues from Bowling Alleys to  Art Galleries.

All the while Minneapolis based, Tinderbox Music will be pushing the EP hard via the College Radio Circuit.
