Rhode Island prog rockers The Dear Hunter are slated to release their forthcoming EP, All Is As All Should Be, on Dec. 1, and the sextet will hit the tour bus in support of the six-track effort. They'll tap fellow rockers The Family Crest and Vava as support along the 14-show run.
The tour kicks off on Nov. 28 at Doug Fir Lounge in Portland. They'll make their way across the west coast over six more dates, including stops at The UC Theatre in Berkeley, Calif. and Bluebird Theater in Denver. Midwest and east Ccoast shows round out the month-long trek, with gigs scheduled at Bottom Lounge in Chicago, Royale in Boston and Warsaw in Brooklyn. The tour wraps with the 4th Annual Holiday Spectacular at Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ on Dec. 15, which also features co-headliner Taking Back Sunday. Check out the complete list of tour dates below.
All Is As All Should Be is The Dear Hunter's 14th EP and first release since Act V: Hymns with the Devil in Confessional in 2016. Frontman Casey Crescenzo discusses the mindset for the EP on the band's official website.
"After navigating through a few different ideas, one hit me, and within a few seconds, I was committed to seeing it realized. Our goal would be to invite our friends—fans of the band—into the creative process… to be a conduit for their hearts and minds," the statement reads. "While every single one of you is wholly unique, this EP, and these people, represent the extended family of The Dear Hunter - all of you leaving a fingerprint on these songs, and this project."
