2016 is gearing up to be a big year for Boy & Bear. With a National Tour kicking off in Tasmania last Friday followed by Melbourne on Saturday and with another four capital cities to entertain over the coming weeks, they have really laid a solid foundation for a strong year.
Celebrating the launch of their album, Limit of Love with the release just over a week ago of the band’s video of title song, ‘Limit of Love’, and in a well timed appearance, the boys took to Triple J’s Like a Version on Friday morning giving Amy Winehouse’s ‘Back to Black’ the Boy & Bear treatment.
We can only hope this moody cover will warrant a spot on the stages around the nation for the rest of their tour.
Remaining tour dates :
Friday 29 January – Thebarton Theatre, Adelaide SA
Saturday 30 January – Red Hill Auditorium, Perth WA
Friday 12 February – Hordern Pavillion, Sydney NSW (All Ages)

If you missed the news last year singer-songwriters Emily Barker, Amber Rubarth and Amy Speace came together last year to write and record under the moniker Applewood Road. The music we’ve heard from the trio so far is wonderful – old time country music with beautiful harmonies.
The latest single from Applewood Road is “Lovin’ Eyes” and comes with a brand new video. The track will appear on the trio’s upcoming self-titled album, due on the 12th February.
Check out the video for “Lovin’ Eyes” below:

The national tour from Boy & Bear kicks off this week and to celebrate the band have just released their excellent new video “Limit of Love”.
“I’ve seen lots of friends lose themselves while searching for love,” Boy & Bear frontman Dave Hosking explained of the song. “We all need to be loved and when people don’t get their fix, it can drive them to do strange things. We liked the idea of looking at love as a drug, something more sinister, something we quite powerfully depend on.”
Check out the video for “Limit of Love” below:
The full list of upcoming dates on the Boy & Bear national tour are as follows:
Friday 22nd January – Odeon Theatre, Hobart, TAS
Saturday 23rd January – Festival Hall, Melbourne, VIC
Friday 29th January – Thebarton Theatre, Adelaide, SA
Saturday 30th January – Red Hill Auditorium, Perth, WA
Friday 12th February – Horden Pavilion, Sydney, NSW
Saturday 13th February – Riverstage, Brisbane, QLD
