In June, Boy & Bear returned. Their last foray into music was 2015’s acclaimed record Limit Of Love, so their return with single ‘Hold Your Nerve’ was a triumphant one, to say the least. The track marked a new period for the band, one that was defined by some pretty hard times.
The band’s frontman Dave Hosking has been battling with chronic dysbiosis, and it was only in recent months that his struggle was made public. A brief hiatus across 2017-18 allowed Hosking to get his health in order, and in that time after, the band began to ready their new record, Suck On Light.
Their fourth record will officially be out this Friday, 27th September and in true Boy & Bear fashion, they’re not letting a moment pass by. After heading back on the road and touring Australia last month, they’ve locked in dates all around the world that will see them touring for the next few months.
The boys are currently smashing out a massive North American tour, with half of the dates still to go. It’s been a momentous time for them as a few years ago, they were both unsure of the band’s future and fearful for Hosking’s health.
Queensland-born folk musical Stu Larsen has been opening for Boy & Bear all tour, and along the way, has been capturing some of their special moments both on and off stage. He’s given us a peek into what’s been going on behind the scenes with a few words on each picture too. Take a look below.
