More Boy & Bear More Boy & Bear

It seems relentless touring and fan interaction has paid off for Boy & Bear, with the new record from the Sydney indie-rock outfit, Limit Of Love, debuting at #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart.

After topping the chart with 2013’s Harlequin Dream, it’s their second consecutive number one record on the ARIA Albums Chart. Their debut record, Moonfire, came in at #2 back in 2011.

They’ll take their new record on road in January with a run of impressive headline dates.

Boy & Bear’s rise to the top pushed triple j’s Like A Version 11 to second place, while US pop singer Selena Gomez debuted at #3 with her new record, Revival, knocking Aussie legends Cold Chisel to #4, a lower placing than predicted by midweek figures
