The Dears Unveil Degeneration Street
The Dears will play their new album, Degeneration Street, in its entirety at Brooklyn's Knitting Factory tonight and tomorrow. The album will be released on Feb. 15, and the lineup's changed quite a bit since 2008's Missiles. Degeneration Street actually started out as a solo project for frontman Murray Lightburn before turning into another Dears effort. Like fellow Montreal group Stars, they play romantic, dramatic indie rock, although there's a bit more anguish here.
They were pretty solid when they played New York back in 2007, and it should be a good show.
Here's live footage from Mexico City of "Omega Dog."
