Bear Trade unveil a charming off-beat video for ‘As Long As We Have Tea’

By Aaron Lohan

Bear Trade are exclusively sharing their new video for ‘As Long As We Have Tea’ with us at Punktastic.

“We took an hour out of band practice to film this and then I spent about 100 hours trying to outshine James Cameron’s Avatar,” explains vocalist/guitarist Greg Robson on the charmingly odd video. “I’m quietly confident we achieved this.”

As for the meaning behind this endearingly delivered rough punk tune, Robson had the following to say: “This is a love song. The video is a very whimsical accompaniment to a very heartfelt message. Like a lot of people, my wife and I have been through a lot. Every up and down we face together and it make us stronger, and no matter how hard life gets we know we’ll be OK, as long as we have tea.”

‘As Long As We Have Tea’ is taken from Bear Trade’s upcoming new album, ‘Silent Unspeakable’, which will be released on the 21st April via Everything Sucks Music (UK) and Dead Broke Rekerds (US). The North East punks will also be playing a few UK shows with Strike Anywhere and Petrol Girls next week, the dates of which are listed below.

21 MANCHESTER Manchester Punk Fest
