BOY & BEAR DELIVER WHACKY VIDEO FOR WALK THE WIRE ALONGSIDE NATIONAL LIMIT OF LOVE ALBUM TOUR ANNOUNCE

A few weeks out from the release of their third studio album, Limit of Love, and after an impressively busy touring schedule in 2014 that saw Boy & Bear play 170 shows across three continents, the boys have decided it’s time to hit the road again and have today announced their Limit Of Love album tour.  Set to kick off at Odeon Theatre in Tasmania on January 22, the tour will move through to Festival Hall Melbourne on January 23, Thebarton Theatre Adelaide on January 29, Red Hill Auditorium Perth on January 30, Hordern Pavillion Sydney on February 12 and will finish up at Riverstage in Brisbane on February 13.

 Written together as a full band and recorded live to tape with Ethan Johns (Ryan Adams, Kings of Leon, Kaiser Chiefs), lead single Walk The Wire is bounding with energy and sees the Sydney five-piece take on a slightly new approach. “It is quite a lighthearted track for us, which has been fun,” explains vocalist David Hosking.  “It’s about the internal battle that happens when you’re summoning up the courage to approach someone you like, I guess the broader sentiment is ‘don’t die wondering’, you gotta put it on the line sometimes and go for it!”

 Complementing the laid back nature of the song, Boy & Bear have delivered a hilariously whacky and somewhat out-of-character video for Walk The Wire, directed by award winners Darcy Prendergast and Josh Thomas from the Oh Yeah Wow, (Goyte, The Paper Kites, Hermitude).  “The clip was a lot of fun to make.  The concept was simple: Start off on the moon of course!” laughs Hosking.  “Then have Killian explode, catch on fire and horrendously maimed, have Killian replaced by animated Killian who then turns evil and creepy, have us clearly unimpressed with things and then have the entire crew and clip descend into brilliant entertaining anarchy!”

 With soon-to-be three full-length albums and hundreds of hours of gigs under their belt, the band are armed with plenty of material for a set list that will satisfy and captivate audiences.  “Having had time away from playing live, we are definitely looking forward to returning to play some fairly iconic venues across the country,” says guitarist Killian Gavin.  “I’ve seen a lot of artists live at these venues over the years and for us to be able to perform at them also is something we are really excited about.”

 Joining Boy & Bear on stage across the country will be Triple J faves, Art of Sleeping and Montaigne.
