Written together as a full band and recorded live to tape with Ethan Johns (Ryan Adams, Kings of Leon, Kaiser Chiefs), Boy & Bears third studio album Limit Of Love is out today. Recorded in the inspirational surroundings of Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studio, Limit Of Love has already been met with great praise across the country.
The first single released from the album, Walk the Wire, fuelled by a gritty guitar and synth groove was instantly added to Triple J (reaching #1 Most Played) and the Triple M Network. Driving the success of the song at radio and online has been the hilarious 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).
A live video of first and current single Walk the Wire was recently filmed and recorded at Sydney’s Studio 301 giving fans a sneak peek of the outstanding and reputable live performance of the Sydney 5-piece.
Anyone who has seen five-time ARIA winners Boy & Bear perform will attest to their power as a live outfit. With three full-length albums and hundreds of hours of gigs under their belt, the Sydney band will also be taking their live show to Europe and the USA next month with the Australian National ‘Limit Of Love’ Album Tour to follow early 2016.
