The duo spent 2016 touring the west coast and making appearances at several noteworthy festivals, including Joshua Tree Music Festival, Mystic Faire (Bakersfield), and a headlining spot at the Long Beach Green Prize Festival. In August 2016 Bearcoon released Laminak, a five song EP to a sold-out crowd at the Compound Studio in Long Beach, CA.
Bearcoon then traveled to the east coast for a stretch of shows in Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina, after which they opened for the Posies at a fundraising event in Portland, OR. Bearcoon finished 2016 gigging heavily in the Long Beach area, including a set at the Best of LGBT Long Beach Awards ceremony.
Bearcoon is currently working on their third album, Home, a collection of reflections on the beauties and everyday rigors of an artist’s life on the road. The duo plans to resume touring in February 2017.
