Meltdown In A Major

well, two of them anyway...Montreal's The Dears have announced that their fourth record, called Missiles, will be released on 10/21. The album will be released by Maple Music in Canada but the band has jumped to Dangerbird for the rest of the world, saying that their "relationships with Bella Union and Arts & Crafts had run their course."

The band line-up has seen a bit of upheaval since their last record, Gang Of Losers, was released in 2006. The Dears are down to a core of Murray Lightburn and Natalia Yanchak but will tour in a new line-up as a seven-piece this fall. I haven't seen any cover art or track listings just yet, but a song called "Meltdown In A Major" (which one assumes will be on the new album) is now streaming on their website. And it is gorgeous! I cannot wait for this record.
