Boy & Bear has announced their highly anticipated debut album Moonfire will be released on Friday 5th August through Island Records Australia.
“We were in the tour bus last year and Jake (bassist) went into a chemist and bought a $2 DVD for the journey. It was called Moonfire. It was about these truckers taking on a Nazi in Mexico. Though I swear the Nazi never turned up in the film and to have a swastika on the DVD cover seems a little extreme for its un-related subplot, and by no means are we endorsing swastika’s or truckers fighting in Mexico or whaling. Oh yeah and so what was the point of that story???… Well we finally decided to name our debut album coming out this August Moonfire” said Boy & Bear via Facebook and Twitter this week.
Recorded in Nashville with producer Joe Chiccarelli (The Strokes, White Stripes, The Shins), Moonfire is an evolution from their acclaimed debut EP, With Emperor Antarctica.
First single ‘Feeding Line’ has already claimed the #1 most played position on triple j. Filmed in the USA, the breathtaking new video takes a scenic journey from Nashville to the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. Watch the video here
Boy & Bear have just hung up their worn boots after their sell-out autumn national tour which included three shows at Corner Hotel in Melbourne and two shows at Sydney’s Metro. Next stop, a return performance at this year’s Splendour In The Grass festival.
