The Wedding Present are back, and sounding as glorious as ever. Check out the video for their new track 'Bear' below. 

The indie hero veterans are gearing up to release their tenth studio album Going, Going in September, and as a taster we're proud to present the exquisite new song. 

With a dynamic sound that wanders between the soulful and the volatile along with some vivid but heartfelt lyrics, it's a blast of classic Wedding Present but with the compulsion of a band always striving forwards rather than leaning on nostalgia. 

 "The band [drums, bass & guitars] was recorded at Studios La Fabrique [Saint-Rémy-De-Provence, France] by Andrew Scheps," says frontman David Gedge. "The singing was recorded at Crackle & Pop Studios [Seattle, Washington] by Paul Hiraga and Allan’s Cove Studios [Brighton, England] by Samuel Beer-Pearce. The track was mixed by Andrew Scheps."

As for the video, he added: "Our drummer Charles Layton set up his camera to film the band at Studios La Fabrique [Saint-Rémy-De-Provence, France] and Parr Street Studios [Liverpool, England] and he edited the footage for this video.”

The Wedding Present release Going, Going on 2 September.
