Latest The Bunny The Bear News
Below is our complete The Bunny The Bear news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
The Bunny The Bear is now streaming sixth album, "A Liar Wrote This," in the YouTube playlist below. The album pushes the band’s previously experimental post-hardcore sound into all sorts of new areas, and you can thank new vocalist Haley Roback for this development - she’s the first-ever female “Bear” to be in the band.
The album ping-pongs from R&B to screamo and stops at all points in between in typically bizarre The Bunny The Bear fashion. Vocalist Matt “The Bunny” Tybor comments on the album:
“’A Liar Wrote This’ has already taken a very special place in my heart. I am extremely proud of the hard work put in by all involved, especially Haley, my new ‘Bear.’ It was wonderful working with my long-time friend and producer Doug White, and I couldn’t be more confident with the new direction we’ve taken. We didn’t want to shut fans out by doing a 180-degree change, but the vigor Haley brings definitely earns its place on ‘A Liar Wrote This.’”

Surrounded By Monsters has dropped off the band's remaining tour dates with The Bunny The Bear. A video update from the band explaining the situation can be viewed below, and Surrounded By Monsters also commented:
"We, Surrounded By Monsters, regret to inform our fans that we have decided to drop the remaining dates on The Bunny The Bear tour. This is a decision made by Surrounded By Monsters and not anyone else. We are very sorry to those who were planning on coming to see us at the scheduled shows, but we refuse to continue to support a band like The Bunny The Bear.
"From the start of this tour The Bunny The Bear has been disrespectful and confrontational to ticket holders by calling people in the audience derogatory remarks, to canceling sets because not enough people were in the audience for them to care. This is not something that we as a band support or endorse and we will not tolerate it any further. Once again, we are very sorry to those who were coming out to see us on this tour.
"We hate canceling shows, but under these circumstances we feel it is our only option. It is the fans and their support that make a bands growth and life possible, and by no means should The Bunny The Bear think they have the right to treat people the way they do. No band should EVER put themselves above their fans."
The Bunny The Bear will continue to spread the band's crazy antics and theatrical stage performance across the U.S. on the creatively titled “Hump Into Hibernation” tour beginning November 18th in Tempe, Arizona. Support will come from A Faylene Sky and Surrounded By Monsters.
