PREMIERE: The Bunny The Bear morphs into something sexy and sinister on ‘A Liar Wrote This’ full-album stream

Forget anything you know about the Bunny The Bear. The band’s sixth album, A Liar Wrote This, 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, keeping that patented musical schizophrenia the Bunny The Bear has developed throughout their career. 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.’”

A Liar Wrote This comes out July 24 via Victory Records and can be pre-ordered here.
