Boy & Bear’s ‘Limit Of Love’ Debuts At #1 On The ARIA Albums Chart
October 21, 2015 BY Nettwerk
Australia’s Boy & Bear see their latest album, Limit Of Love (October 9), debut at #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart, marking back to back #1 album debuts for the five-piece indie rock/folk band. Here in the U.S., lead single “Walk The Wire” is quickly climbing the Triple A Top 30 Chart, landing this week at #22 (up five spots). Watch the (amusingly strange) video for “Walk The Wire” above.
The band will return to the U.S. next month for a short run of intimate shows to support Limit Of Love. Dates have already started to sell out, starting with the tour’s launch on November 11 in Brooklyn, NY at Rough Trade. All dates are listed below.
For the follow-up to 2013’s acclaimed Harlequin Dream, Boy & Bear decided to take the momentum they had gathered on the road – 170 shows across three continents in one year – directly into the studio. They teamed up with renowned producer Ethan Johns (Ryan Adams, Kings of Leon, Kaiser Chiefs) with the intention of cutting a record the old fashion way, live in the studio (vocals and all), straight to tape, with virtually no overdubs.

Named one of USA Today’s “5 Australian Acts You Need To Know Now,” Boy & Bear saw huge success in North America in 2014 with single “Southern Sun” from Harlequin Dream, which was Top 5 on the Triple A Top 30 Chart for five consecutive weeks. The band made their U.S. late night TV debut last summer on CONAN, as well as appeared on NPR’s “World Café With David Dye” and VH1 Big Morning Buzz. In their home country, Harlequin Dream debuted at #1 on the ARIA Top Albums Chart and was certified Platinum.
Boy & Bear is Dave Hosking (lead singer/guitars), Killian Gavin (guitars/vocals), Tim Hart (drums/vocals), Jon Hart (keys/vocals) and Dave Symes (bass/vocals).
