The Dears Releasing Degeneration Street Feb 15October 26, 2010
The Dears have announced the release of their new album, Degeneration Street. A welcome return to form and for fans of the operatic hysteria of past albums, this effort finds Murray Lightburn, Natalia Yanchak, Patrick Krief, Robert Benvie, Roberto Arquilla and Jeff Luciani creating a sweeping collection of orchestral pop / rock that is at once enlightening, angst-ridden and mesmerizing. Set for a February 15th release on Dangerbird Records, the record was captured and produced by Tony Hoffer (Phoenix, Belle and Sebastian).
The Dears will be premiering Degeneration Street in its entirety on November 3rd and 4th in Brooklyn, NY. These dates are part of a North American residency bringing the new album to fans while raising money for War Child International, an organization working to help children affected by the horrors of war.
November 3rd and 4th The Knitting Factory Brooklyn, NY
