The Dears Announce Mexico City Residency

Tuesday April 6, 2010 - 64 months ago

Montreal-based sextet The Dears will become Mexico City’s Pasagüero’s house band for a three-day residency. The band is emerging from the cold Montreal winter with a collection of almost 30 brand new songs for its upcoming album. The shows will take place May 6, 7 and 8 and will be recorded in HD-video for a special edition pressing of the album for its fall-winter release.

After months holed up in grey, wintry Montreal collaborating on the new album, The Dears are eager to share these adventurous songs with their Mexican audience, who have played a key role in the band’s survival. From being catapulted to international success with 2004’s No Cities Left, to the difficult period of adjustments that followed 2006’s Gang of Losers album, ensuing lineup changes nearly pushed them to consider the band’s permanent dissolution. Yet their 2009 sold-out concert at Lunario in Mexico City helped The Dears find the strength and faith to continue, taking the music to the next level with the aptly-titled most recent LP, Missiles. “The Dears’ heart was beating slowly and was dying”, Lightburn told the Mexican crowd during the show, “but Mexico has injected blood and made it stronger again, beating with more strength than ever. We will never forget this.”

More details regarding the upcoming album and the new line-up of The Dears will be announced soon.
