Acclaimed Montreal rock band The Dears are proud to announce the release of their new album, DEGENERATION STREET. A welcome return to form and for fans of the operatic hysteria of past albums, NO CITIES LEFT and GANG OF LOSERS, DEGENERATION STREET 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 Pheromone Recordings, the praised grandiosity and cathartic signature sound of The Dears was captured and produced by Tony Hoffer (Phoenix, Belle and Sebastian).
First single “Omega Dog” encapsulates The Dears’ neo-romantic songwriting and acts as a calling card for DEGENERATION STREET as a whole: ranging from electrifying pop, to full-on primal screams; grinding guitar solos, to soulful baroque. DEGENERATION STREET is an album propelled by passion and driven by The Dears’ dedication to creating music out of real emotions, music that has connected the group with a legion of fans and critics.
