Summer Dates Start June 21 With Firefly Music Festival

“Southern Sun” Reaches #4 On Triple A Top 30 Chart

June 9, 2014 (New York, NY) – Australia’s Boy & Bear will return to North America this fall for a 21-city headline tour, starting Monday, October 6 in Los Angeles at The Fonda Theatre and wrapping Saturday, November 1 in San Francisco at The Grand Ballroom At Regency Center. The band, which USA Today named in its “Top 5 Australian Acts You Need To Know Now,” made their first trip to the States in two years when they appeared at SXSW 2014, and followed it with a sold-out spring headline tour in support of their latest release, Harlequin Dream.

Before the fall, the quintet will return for a short run of summer festival and headline tour dates, starting June 21 with the Firefly Music Festival in Dover, DE. The band’s lead single, “Southern Sun,” has been top 5 on the Triple A Top 30 Chart for four consecutive weeks, reaching #4 last week. They were recently featured on NPR’s “World Café With David Dye” and VH1’s Big Morning Buzz, and have received major support from such influential radio stations as San Francisco's KFOG, Portland's KINK, Sirius XM Spectrum, Denver's KBCO, Boston's The River, Los Angeles' KCSN and more.

Harlequin Dream was recorded at Australia's legendary Alberts Studio, produced by Boy & Bear and ARIA-award winner Wayne Connolly and mixed by Seattle-based Phil Ek (Band Of Horses, Fleet Foxes, Father John Misty). In Australia, the album had a steady run at #1, was certified Gold, and received several ARIA Award nominations, including Best Group, Best Rock Album and Producer Of The Year. This follows their award-winning debut LP Moonfire, which won five awards at 2011 ARIAs, including the coveted group and best album prizes for their acclaimed debut – Album Of The Year, Best Group, Breakthrough Album, Breakthrough Single and Best Adult Contemporary Album.

Boy & Bear is Dave Hosking (lead singer/guitars), Killian Gavin (vocals/guitars), Tim Hart (drums, vocals, guitars), Jon Hart (vocals/keys/mandolin) and Dave Symes (bass).
