The Dears / February 2017 UK Tour

Montreal husband and wife duo The Dears will be touring the England and Wales this weekend and into early next week, playing their first UK shows in 6 years. The four UK live dates are in support of the pair’s latest album release ‘Times Infinity Volume One’, out now on Dangerbird Records. The album is part of a two-volume series, the second half of which is titled ‘Times Infinity Volume Two’ and due for release later this year.

Frontman Murray Lightburn says of the 2-year long project, “Putting these two records together was like solving a puzzle: Volume One was about finding the edge pieces while Volume Two was about the middle pieces. It was very difficult to wrap one’s head around at first, but by the end of production, it just became easier and easier. It’s a metaphor for life, and our life’s story.”

You can watch The Dears’ brand new video for album track ‘To Hold and Have’ just below the tour date listing. Tickets for the following shows are available now.

Friday 2​4th February 2017 – Cardiff Globe
Saturday 25th February 2017 – Bristol Fleece
Sunday 26th February 2017 – Leeds Brudenell
Tuesday 28th February 2017 – London Village Underground
