The Dears Head Off On May U.S. Tour

The Dears have already toured North America, Europe and Australia behind No Cities Left, and the Montreal rockers will head back across the U.S. beginning May 24th in Los Angeles.

Formed a decade ago, the Dears are longtime critical favorites, but their orchestral-tinged rock has just begun to win over the public. “When you actually get out there and the crowd knows the songs and is really into it,” Lightburn says, “that’s where it hits you.”

The Dears will be road-testing new material on the tour, and they plan to begin recording the No Cities follow-up later this year. ” The real challenge is to make an album that is more succinct but still epic,” Lightburn says. “I think the album is about forgiveness and, I guess, a bit more of what No Cities Left was trying to get at: a big love that can save the world.”
