The folk rock Sydney-siders, Boy & Bear have just announced their third studio album ‘Limit of Love’ off the back of their performance at Splendour in the Grass earlier this year.
This follows on from their #1 ARIA album and platinum-selling ‘Harlequin Dream,’ from 2013. For ‘Limit of Love,’ the five-piece band have joined forces with producer, Ethan Johns at Peter Gabriel’s UK Real World Studio to record the album the old fashioned way – live and straight to tape. For them, ‘Limit of Love’ is less about fine-tuning everything to the nth-degree, and more about capturing the band’s abilities in an honest, organic way.
Another challenge for the band came in the decision to write the album a collective. This comes as a first for Boy & Bear who usually have the lead vocalist and guitarist, Dave Hoskings write the tracks. They’ve already premiered the album’s first single Walk the Wire, at Splendour in the Grass, which was highly received by their fans.
‘Limit of Love’ will be released through Universal Music Australia on 9th October.
