The Dears Celebrate With Album, Tour and Ripping New Song Video

Montreal band The Dears celebrate a 20th anniversary this year with the release of Times Infinity Volume One (TIVO) (Dangerbird/Pheromone Recordings, Sept. 25th). Clocking in at 38 minutes, the orchestral-rock collection infuses African rhythms, lush harmony overlays and ripping bursts of energy that will ring both familiar and pleasing to fans of that other Montreal band; you know, the one featuring the Butler brothers.

TIVO was assembled over a two-year period, recorded at Revolution Recording and Thee Mighty Hotel2Tango studios in Toronto and Montreal, produced and mixed by Murray Lightburn, and recorded by Dave Schiffman (Rage Against The Machine), Howard Bilerman (Arcade Fire), Efrim Menuck and Thierry Amar (Godspeed You! Black Emperor). Volume Two will be wrapped in the next few months and is scheduled for release in early 2016.
