Australian Folk-Rockers Boy & Bear Announce Aotearoa Tour

Australian Folk-Rockers Boy & Bear Announce Aotearoa Tour

A.K. / Tuesday 10th December, 2019 10:19AM

After three chart topping albums and a four year hiatus, Australian folk-rock troop Boy & Bear are taking their fourth collection Suck On Light on a long overdue Aotearoa tour in April 2020. The five-piece rocketed around North America following the release of Suck On Light in September, so their country-tinged pop will be in fine form in time for three foot-stomping New Zealand autumn events. The band have also shared a dramatic and bolshy video for 'Telescope', one of the stand outs from their latest release, to coincide with their tour announcement. Take note of where you can experience the high energy performance of Boy & Bear below...

UPDATE 2/4/20: Boy & Bear's Aotearoa dates have been postponed to October 2020...

Press release:

Australian indie-folk band BOY & BEAR make their glorious and highly-anticipated return to New Zealand in support of their latest album, Suck on Light. The five-piece embark on a tour across the country hitting Wellington’s Hunter Lounge on April 16, Auckland’s Powerstation on April 17 and finishing in Christchurch at the James Hay Theatre on April 18.

After the most tumultuous period of their lives both personally and professionally, Boy & Bear are back with another national tour.

The band’s position in the music industry was firmly cemented in 2011 after their debut album Moonfire reached platinum, won Boy & Bear five ARIA awards and saw three songs make it to triple j’s Hottest 100 of 2011. Two years later came the release of their highly anticipated sophomore album Harlequin Dream, which debuted at #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart, spent five consecutive weeks in the top 10 and has since gone Platinum.

In October 2015 Boy & Bear put out Limit Of Love, debuting at #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart, making it their second consecutive number one debut. Following the release of their newest album Suck on Light, the band embarked on a massive North American tour, playing packed theatres across the US and Canada. Having now returned home, the boys are excited to share their new album with audiences across Australia and NZ in 2020.
