During the band’s four-year break, lead singer Murray Lightburn was skeptical about the future of The Dears. “When you start a band, you never think of the end,” he said. “When we began work on this album, it was a process that consumed us completely, harkening back to our earliest days. In turn, the record became about sentimentality but in the face of great uncertainty; the concept of eternal love and all its fragility.”
The album was written in a two-year span and produced by the Lightburn himself. The band will tour the album later this year but currently are in the studio working on Times Infinity Volume Two with a 2016 release.
