THE DEARS ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM, DEGENERATION STREET

OUT FEBRUARY 15th ON DANGERBIRD RECORDS
 
NEW SINGLE, OMEGA DOG, NOW AVAILABLE

BAND PLAYS ALBUM IN ENTIRETY NOVEMBER 3rd AND 4th IN BROOKLYN, NY

Acclaimed Montreal rock band The Dears are proud to announce the release of their new album, DEGENERATION STREET. A welcome return to form and for fans of the operatic hysteria of past albums, NO CITIES LEFT and GANG OF LOSERS, DEGENERATION STREET finds Murray Lightburn, Natalia Yanchak, Patrick Krief, Robert Benvie, Roberto Arquilla and Jeff Luciani creating a sweeping collection of orchestral pop / rock that is at once enlightening, angst-ridden and mesmerizing. Set for a February 15th release on Dangerbird Records, the praised grandiosity and cathartic signature sound of The Dears was captured and produced by Tony Hoffer (Phoenix, Belle and Sebastian).

First single “Omega Dog” encapsulates The Dears’ neo-romantic songwriting and acts as a calling card for DEGENERATION STREET as a whole; ranging from electrifying pop, to full-on primal screams; grinding guitar solos, to soulful baroque. DEGENERATION STREET is an album propelled by passion and driven by The Dears’ dedication to creating music out of real emotions, music that has connected the group with a legion of fans and critics.

First track “Omega Dog” can now be purchased at http://store.thedears.org/

Known for a commanding live show that established The Dears as a unique and powerful presence, the band will be premiering DEGENERATION STREET in its entirety on November 3rd and 4th in Brooklyn, NY. These dates are part of a North American residency bringing the new album to fans while raising money for War Child International, an organization working to help children affected by the horrors of war.
