The Dears to Perform Entire New Album at Upcoming Residencies

To introduce audiences to their new collection of songs, acclaimed art rock band The Dears will play a series of residencies during which they will perform their forthcoming record (coming early 2011) in full. The eight residency shows – three consecutive nights in Toronto and Montreal and two in Brooklyn – will recapture the essence of band’s immensely successful string of shows in Mexico City this past May.

The Dears will be donating proceeds from every merch sale at these residencies to Montreal City Mission and War Child. “Some of the items are rare, might be the wrong size, while some things are out of print and may be sold at ridiculous prices. But this is not just about raising money. People hurt everywhere, all the time, and in so many ways. Essentially, this is what we sing about and sometimes singing just ain’t enough. By taking some of this stuff off our hands, hopefully folks will remember who they’re helping and why,” says the band of the endeavor.

9/29: Montreal, QC at POP Montreal
9/30: Montreal, QC at POP Montreal
10/1: Montreal, QC at POP Montreal

10/13: Toronto, ON at The Garrison
10/14: Toronto, ON at The Garrison
10/15: Toronto, ON at The Garrison

11/3: Brooklyn, NY at Knitting Factory
11/4: Brooklyn, NY at Knitting Factory

Tickets go on sale July 23rd for the Canadian dates, and July 24th for the Brooklyn dates.

“With a pair of appealing vocalists, chops for days and energy to spare, FATT have all the skills to reside at the top of the neo-soul heap.”

Delphic "Doubt" Music Video Online Now

The music video for “Doubt” from Delphic’s recently released album Acolyte is now available to watch online.

“With this video we wanted to do something a little darker and different to what we had done before,” says guitarist Matthew Cocksedge. “We really liked [director] Andrew [Huang]‘s work and thought he was the perfect man for the job. Sadly we weren’t there for the shoot, and even more sadly, it is not us in the video, although my blonde curls are coming along quite nicely now. Conceptually, the link is not hard to make, with the physical pieces on the actors growing and growing until being blown away in a blinding light, but you have to leave something up to the audience don’t you….”

Download Acolyte from iTunes or your favorite digital store.
