THE DEAR HUNTER Announce New Album “Act V: Hymns With the Devil in Confessional” + Fall Tour Dates

by | Jun 22, 2016

How about that? Less than a year after their latest record was released, The Dear Hunter have announced a new album titled Act V: Hymns With the Devil in Confessional. Brace yourselves, it’s the final record in the “Act” series.

As Casey Crescenzo put it,

Act V… will be the final ‘rock’ record in the Act series. This may read as though I am abandoning the project, one record early – but the truth is simply that in knowing what Act VI means to the series, and what its story has to say – presenting it in the same form as Acts I-V would be short selling the creative opportunity it presents…

In the foreseeable future, this means to recognize the box that The Dear Hunter has lived in, and blow the box up. This doesn’t mean more than it says. This band is not ending… I am not quitting… This is nothing more than vocalizing the desire for fresh air after what I believe has been the busiest, and most obsessive, two years of my life.

The band will be embarking on The Final Act Tour this fall with Eisley and Gavin Castleton.

Act V: Hymns with the Devil in Confessional will be released this September through Cave & Canary Goods/Equal Vision.
