Suck On Light is the fourth studio album by Australian indie folk rock band Boy & Bear. Released in September 2019 via Island Records.

Suck On Light is about lead singer, Dave Hosking's own personal experience with being really sick, for a really long time with chronic dysbiosis.

The illness effected his brain and body to the point where basic tasks (shopping, working, and socialising) were near impossible. He was in a constant state of agitation and discomfort, confused, exhausted and felt like he was living on another planet. The worst of it lasted for about 5 years.

The record lyrically is about this experience as well as some of the more positive sentiments and lessons that have come from the challenge. At its heart, the album is about the power of our own minds. Our ability to compartmentalise as well as escape when we need to.

The album title is a name of one of the songs but more importantly a fitting metaphor for hope and sums up the theme of the record really well. The idea also stems from a Leonard Cohen lyrics "it is through the cracks where the light gets in."

Suck On Light peaked at number 7 on the Australian ARIA Albums Chart, becoming the band's fourth top 10 album.

This limited LP record is on orange swirl coloured vinyl with a printed inner sleeve.
