Dear And The Headlights Announce Fall Headline Tour

Phoenix, Arizona indie-rockers, Dear And The Headlights, have announced a month long headlining tour. The quintet will bring along fellow Arizonians, Kinch, as support.

Dear And The Headlights has spent the better part of 2009 making the festival rounds with barn-burning performances at this year’s NoisePop, SXSW, Coachella, and Summerfest festivals as well as a month on Warped Tour. Of their Coachella performance, Entertainment Weekly‘s Whitney Pastorek declared “this Phoenix band’s no-frills set fit the bill to perfection” describing it as “some clangy, shouty, bearded-boy music with a lead singer who studied at the Okkervil River school of plaintive yelping and a downbeat that gets into your knees… and when frontman Ian Metzger said, ‘This is a really great time right now,’ I had to agree.”

Dear And The Headlights released Drunk Like Bible Times last September to much critical acclaim including Alternative Press (4.5-out-of-5), and Spin.com, and were featured on AOL Spinner, Blender.com, Daytrotter, and RCRDLBL. The Phoenix New Times cited Dear And The Headlights as the “most important band in Arizona” in their recent cover feature on the band.
