The Dear Hunter Announce Spring Tour and Album Release

The Dear Hunter have set an April 2, 2013 release date for their new studio album, which is entitled Migrant.

The album was produced by Mike Watts and the effort was recorded at Vu Du Studios in Long Island, NY.

Vocalist and songwriter Casey Crescenzo had this to say about Migrant, "When I started writing this record, I made sure to limit myself to an instrument and my voice. I didn't want to jump into the current of production I always had before - predetermining the final path of each song from its inception. Instead, I let the music take as natural a course as it could."

"What felt at first to be the seeds of the starkest songs, grew into some of the most lush and beautiful arrangements I had written to date. Keeping the heart of the music so transparent was liberating, and the result is, at the very least, the most creatively rewarding record yet."

The band will support the effort by launching a North American headline tour in March with support from Naive Thieves.

An Evening with The Dear Hunter is set to kick off on March 12 in Scottsdale, AZ. Crescenzo explains that the band will have more freedom on the upcoming trek, "In the past, due to the time constraints we faced on stage, we focused very narrowly on representing whichever record we were currently promoting. The time is finally right to represent the vastness of the band's discography, and to give longtime fans something special. There are a great deal of songs we haven't played in years, and a few we have never played. We hope everyone is as excited as we are."

Prior to the North American tour the band will head to Australia to take part in this year's Soundwave Festival.
