HAILED as the “heroes British rock needs right now”, Hunter & The Bear rumble into The Fulford Arms with their brand of raw, melodic thunder on November 24.

From securing support slots with Eric Clapton, Simple Minds and Van Morrison to selling out headline tours, lead vocalist Will Irvine, lead guitarist Jimmy Hunter, drummer Gareth Thompson and bassist Chris Clark are on the rise with their melancholic, expansive and uplifting songs, driven by powerhouse riffs.

Hunter & The Bear will be showcasing their debut album, Paper Heart, released in May, with all the tracks written by this group of close friends. Tickets for next Friday's 7.30pm gig are on sale at seetickets.com/event/hunter-the-bear/the-fulford-arms
