At the beginning of 2018, Bear Trade came to an end. Three quarters of the Bears wanted to keep playing together whilst exactly reinventing the wheel.

At the beginning of 2018, Helen Chambers was still performing solo, playing her folk tinged acoustic tunes with her uniquely affecting voice.

Our debut LP, Heavy Seas was released in 2019 on Everything Sucks.

We remain committed our old school values of enjoying a beer and sharing fun times.
