Polar Bears (band)

Polar Bears (band)

Polar Bears, are an indie rock band from Santa Rosa, California who currently play in and around the North Bay music scene. They have toured nationally with long time friends The Velvet Teen and have done numerous West Coast tours since their inception in 2001. In March 2004, they released an EP, "Shorts Are for Warm", on Petaluma-based record label, Pandacide. More recently, in early 2007, Polar Bears self-released their full-length album, "The Future King". Currently this album is only available directly from the band at their live shows and from The Last Record Store in Santa Rosa. Polar Bears are notable in the Sonoma County music scene for being one of the biggest drawing and intensely furious live bands in the area. Their following has steadily grown during their existence, being prominently featured in publications such as the North Bay Bohemian and Metroactive.com. Bands that Polar Bears have shared the stage with include: Cursive (band), Nomeansno, The Casket Lottery and Aloha (band).
