Boy & Bear Announce Intimate Album Launch Events in Sydney and Melbourne

Boy & Bear have announced a string of album launch events up the east coast to support their upcoming fifth record, Boy & Bear. The Sydney band will appear at two ‘in-conversation’ style events at Sydney’s Lansdowne Hotel and Melbourne’s Northcote Social Club, discussing their career and playing some select tracks from across their discography.

They’ll also be dropping by record stores in Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane throughout May, performing tracks from the new album. Alongside all of these announcements, the band have dropped a new single, titled ‘Silver Moon’.

Boy & Bear: ‘Silver Moon’

We’ve heard a number of singles from the album already, including ‘Apex’, ‘State of Flight’, and ‘Just To Be Kind’. The full album will arrive on Friday, 26th May.

“We wanted to make an album of seductive grooves, soaring melodies, modulated ambient textures, and great stories,” bassist Dave Symes said about the album in a statement. “We worked hard to strike the right balance between vintage and cutting edge, polished and sure, but full of heart and wild touches.”

Boy & Bear follows the band’s 2019 album Suck On Light. The band will be heading out on a national tour for the record later this year, kicking off in Melbourne on Friday, 16th June – see all dates and details below.
