A month ahead of releasing Times Infinity Volume One, The Dears share their first single, “Here’s to The Death of All the Romance,” via Exclaim!. Propelled by emotive lyrics against a grandiose, orchestral backdrop, the track from Times Infinity Volume One is a dark but realistic sentiment on unconditional love. Listen here.
Times Infinity Volume One is out September 25th via Pheromone Recordings and is available for pre-order on iTunes now. “Here’s To The Death Of All The Romance” follows the band’s release of the teaser track “I Used To Pray For The Heavens To Fall” last month.

The Dears will be heading west next month for a number of dates including a performance at Rifflandia Festival. In addition, the band will be hosting a record release show in Montreal, QC at the Phi Centre. A limited amount of tickets will be available exclusively through the band’s social networks. Stay tuned for more information and additional tour dates.
“The Dears are sexual, knowledgeably sensitive beasts, uniquely gracefully and delicately ornate. A band that folk can believe in, and trustworthy in the task of carrying the emotional baggage invested in them by those who do so.” – NME
“Spanning nearly two decades together, releasing 5 albums and playing some of the worlds largest festivals from Glastonbury to Coachella, this Montreal band surely knows a thing or two about writing a great pop hit.” – Indie88
“”I Used To Pray For the Heavens to Fall’ is an early taste of what’s to come, and it demonstrates how, if anything, this band has only gotten better with age.” – New Canadian Music
