Win Tickets To The Dear Hunter!

Hailing from Providence, Rhode Island, The Dear Hunter is the brainchild of Casey Crescenzo, who in 2005 began writing a series of concept albums under the title of "Acts." According to the band's Wikipedia page, Crescenzo "expanded the scope of the project to a six-album story set at the dawn of the 20th century. The story revolved around the birth, life, and abrupt death of a boy known only as 'The Dear Hunter.' Crescenzo later remarked that the protagonist is 'not a hero at all. I do not think he does a single good thing or smart thing in any of the stories.' The latest installment is titled Act V: Hymns With The Devil In Confessional, of which the Prog Report website noted:

"Crescenzo draws from a plethora of influences from The Beatles to ELO to Radiohead. It’s possible that calling this band and their sound Prog is a bit of a disservice. They are decidedly more modern sounding and less of a technical beast than the prototypical Prog group. At times, they sound more like an elaborate version of Death Cab for Cutie if they attempted a Prog Rock opera. Regardless, it all makes for something entirely different and spectacular."
