Montreal rockers, The Dears, have made a name for themselves as a band that can move from electrifying pop, to full-on primal screams; grinding guitar solos, to a soulful baroque. With a musical hiatus since their 2008 album Missiles, The Dears look to announce a forthcoming album Degeneration Street. The release date is set for February 15th, 2011 on Dangerbird Records.
Produced by Tony Hoffer (Phoenix, Belle and Sebastian), Degeneration Street is said to be a “return to form” for frontman Murray Lightburn and company. The new material traces back to the band’s previous albums such as No Cities Left (2003) and Gang of Losers (2007).
