Sydney folk-rock ensemble Boy & Bear are gearing up for a national tour in May and June.
The nine-date trip around the nation comes straight after the five-piece return from the US from an appearance at SXSW in Austin, Texas.
The tour continues a whirlwind first year or so for the band, who won the Triple J Unearthed award in 2010, releasing their debut EP With Emperor Antarctica, toured the UK with Laura Marling and Australia with Mumford and Sons. They also recently took part in the tribute album to Neil and Tim Finn, He Will Have His Way.
