Brother Bear change name
2011-11-14 by Kris. | 21 Comments

California post-hardcore band Brother Bear have recently decided to change their name to State Faults.

Quote:
When the band first started as Jared and Jonny jamming in a bedroom, the music was VERY different and Brother Bear seemed appropriate for it. We also were unaware of the Disney Movie of the same title (we later watched it and were very disappointed, except for Phil Collins, because he can never do wrong.)

So long story short, we feel this name better suits us as a band and as individuals, and we’re all really pumped on it! We’re also very pumped not to be lumped in with a Disney Movie, and there’s also a million other Brother Bear bands out there that we were getting confused with.

We’re still the same band, we’ll play the same songs and say the same stuff and forever keep the open dialogue we’ve had between you guys and us, and simply put, to us we will always be the Bears. But we’re a big boy band now, and sometimes that means doin some big boy stuff. State Faults stuff.
The band is set to play their last show as Brother Bear on November 26th in Santa Rosa, CA.

Well as long as they aren't going in an entirely new direction musically, it really has no barring.

I always lol'd at the "similar artists" on last.fm though.

change the title to state faults, calling them brother bear when they changed their name is just going to confuse people

i guess it's early enough in their career that this is allowable, other name was definitely more manly though

lol, they're wrong though. Phil Collins is quite capable of doing wrong. See: his entire body of work (minus most of Genesis).

It's not an arbitrary cold name as much as it's an arbitrary plural noun with no "the" like Departures, Manners, Dangers, etc. At least Harbours changed their name to Only Distance.

State Faults is such a lame name compared to Brother Bear though

@Aids: Phil Collins owned
@Henchmen: for as much as Harbours HAD to change their name, it was also a smart decision now that they aren't really the band they started out as (members and soundwise now that they're just another melodic chugcore band).

What's in now is "The". The strokes. The vines. The hives. The whitestripes... see this isn't new. The Led Zeppelin?? How about... THE STATE FAULTS
