The band has toured Europe and the U.S. and played numerous festivals.

We Built a Fire (2010)
Its second LP, We Built a Fire, was released in March 2010.
The song "Cold Summer", from We Built a Fire, was used in the closing scene of Episode 617 of Grey's Anatomy.
All members of Seabear have other musical and visual art projects. In 2008, Ingibjörg stopped playing live with the band in order to concentrate on her career as a visual artist. In 2008, Sindri released his solo album Clangour under the name Sin Fang Bous; in 2011 he released his second solo album, Summer Echoes, and shortened his stage name to Sin Fang. Sóley is signed as a soloist to Morr Music. Kjartan is in a band called Kimono that has released three albums on Smekkleysa Records, a label founded by the The Sugarcubes. Dóri is a visual artist and was a member of Kimono from 2001–2007, releasing two albums with the band. He is also a member of Mr. Silla, which includes members of Kimono, Múm and Amiina. Örn Ingi plays in the band Skakkamanage. Inga and Sindri are also visual artists and, like Dóri, they have exhibited in solo and group shows in Iceland and abroad. Guðbjörg toured with Sigur Rós during their 2012 and 2013 live shows, as part of the Okkr Ensemble.
