To put it bluntly, American rock group The Dear Hunter is a gem amongst many generic contemporaries. Having previously released a mind-blowing conceptual trilogy, an ambitious thirty-six song opus entitled 'The Color Spectrum,' and most recently, a modest yet still impressive LP called 'Migrant,' it’s fair to say that frontman Casey Crescenzo and his troupe are unbelievably ambitious. If there’s one thing more impressive than the group’s studio output, it’s seeing them perform the stuff live. On September 7th, they’ll be at Union Transfer (a superb venue, by the way), and as clichéd as it may sound, this is one show you really don’t want to miss.
As a special treat, The Dear Hunter will be joined by a string quartet for the show. Seeing as so much of their music contains orchestration, this makes perfect sense; however, another reason for this joint venture is the fact that Crescenzo recently announced his first symphony. A four-movement piece, he will be working alongside the Brno Philharmonic Orchestra in the Czech Republic this fall to bring it to fruition.
