We are excited to announce that Golden Bear will release their fourth LP, entitled Dimensional Place, on September 16, 2016.  After releasing three critically acclaimed LPs and one EP over the course of 2006-2011, the band took some time off to record Dimensional Place in their home studio in Austin, Texas.

Dimensional Place’s distinct R&B sound marks a significant stylistic departure for a band who have already proven adept at genre-mixing over the course of their four previous albums. Amplifying the sonic transformation is the introduction of Golden Bear’s new female lead vocalist, Kate Daniel (K8Tronic). K8 brings a whole new element to the previously all-male band, and lends the ideal voice, ranging from sweet to sultry, to the album’s funk-inflected grooves.
