The Dear Hunter is the main project of multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and songwriter Casey Crescenzo. From the beginning, it was a high-concept project: Casey mapped out multi-page treatments for a six-album story arc about the birth, life, and abrupt death of a boy, set at the dawn of the 20th century. Act I: The Lake South, The River North, Act II: The Meaning of, and All Things Regarding Ms. Leading and the third installment, Act III: Life and Death were released between 2006 and 2009. Crescenzo temporarily stepped away from the series to work on the critically acclaimed 2.5 hour, 9 EP, 36-track collection: The Color Spectrum, his latest studio album Migrant, and his own personal symphony Amour & Attrition. The Dear Hunter has now officially returned to the story with the highly anticipated Act IV: Rebirth In Reprise, produced entirely by Crescenzo. The album features Bay Area musicians the Awesöme Orchestra on every song with orchestration written by Casey.

The tour is making stops along the way at Riot Fest on September 12 in Chicago and in major music markets like Seattle, LA, Austin, and Nashville, before coming to an end at the legendary New York rock club, Irving Plaza, on October 21. CHON and Gates are supporting the tour. This August and early September the band is touring the UK and Europe, marking it their first UK headlining tour with some dates supporting Manchester Orchestra. While in Europe the band will play Pukkelpop Festival in Belgium on August 22. A complete list of tour dates is below and more information and tickets can be found at: http://www.thedearhunter.com.

In March, The Dear Hunter surprised fans with the release of The Dear Hunter Live, which was influenced and inspired by Crescenzo’s own experience with touring and performing. “Over time, I began to discover the live performance as an opportunity to create something new, and fleeting, each night – with an entirely different palette of instruments, both musical and human,” said Crescenzo. The ten-track album is available now on all digital retailers and streaming in its entirety on YouTube.com/equalvision. Physical copies are available exclusively at shows and through the band’s Official MerchNOW store: http://thedearhunter.merchnow.com/
