The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - Best Weekend - - FRONT PAGE -

& m rt, ve rt n. na fter a well-earned break fol­low­ing an ex­ten­sive na­tional and US tours of their Limit Of Love record, Boy & Bear are back play­ing Syd­ney to­day, join­ing Dope Le­mon, The Delta Riggs and more for the Party In The Park fes­ti­val.

Bassist Dave Symes says fes­ti­vals are the per­fect way to wrap a tour cy­cle be­fore start­ing on new ma­te­rial.

“It’s a unique sit­u­a­tion when you play fes­ti­vals and share the en­vi­ron­ment with a whole lot of other bands; it doesn’t hap­pen on your own (tours),” he says.

“You’re back­stage with a whole lot of other bands and get­ting to meet up with friends and you can wan­der around and watch other bands.

“We’re get­ting ready to start writ­ing and get­ting our heads into gear for the next record. We are start­ing to noodle some ideas to sketch out new songs and dis­cuss the di­rec­tion we want it to go in. This year we’ll def­i­nitely have more time at home to get into writ­ing.” Party in the Park, Pittwa­ter Park, 1472 Pittwa­ter Rd, Narrabeen; to­day, 1pm-10.30pm, tick­ets $89, par­tyinthep­ark.com.au
