Phoenix, Arizona’s DEAR AND THE HEADLIGHTS have set a September 30th release date for sophomore album, titled Drunk Like Bible Times. Regarding the unique title, bassist Chuckie Duff explained “it just makes us laugh and people are free to read whatever meaning they want into it. It’s just a good name for what it is – a party record.”


The follow-up to 2007’s Small Steps, Heavy Hooves, has already been named one of the Most Anticipated of 2008 by Alternative Press and DEAR AND THE HEADLIGHTS is certainly not going to disappoint. The album’s opener, “I’m Not Crying. You’re Not Crying, Are You?” may hint at another slow album starter (see: Small Steps, Heavy Hooves’ “Oh No”) but quickly picks the listener up in the band’s familiar piano & tambourine infused pop/indie-rock sound with comparisons to The Flaming Lips. The album’s middle and bridge is “Saintly Rows (Oh Oh)”, a haunting affair channeling Bob Dylan as each line of vocalist Ian Metzger’s lyrics trail off in a sad tone, but ultimately the song builds up to frantic piano lines and a chaotic ending. The theme of the record is most prevalent on the album’s closer, “I Know”: smooth transitions between slowed down, soulful ballads to good old fashioned rock n’ roll.

The 12-track set was recorded with producer and friend, Bob Hoag (The Format, Limbeck), at Flying Blanket Recording in their hometown earlier this summer. “Bob has been pretty influential in the overall sound and to some degree the arrangements on this record, like he was on the last record. He kind of becomes the sixth member in the studio and that works well because we trust him and he hears things the same way we do,” described guitarist, PJ Waxman.

In 2007, the band logged 162 shows on tour with the likes of Circa Survive, Straylight Run, and many more diverse artists. This past Spring, the five-piece spent just over a month opening for emo/indie powerhouses and fellow Arizonians, Jimmy Eat World. During their current headlining trek, DEAR AND THE HEADLIGHTS took the stage with Jimmy Eat World again in a support slot for 5 shows between July 15th and 20th. This fall, the band will hit the road with Minneapolis pop-rock quintet, Motion City Soundtrack, and indie/folk Indianapolis natives, Margot And The Nuclear So & So’s, for The Left Handed Forms Of Human Endeavor tour. Further touring is planned through the end of the year.

BAYSIDE announce fall headline tour and new album

Long Island’s BAYSIDE return this fall with the Involuntary Movement Tour, supporting the release of upcoming album Shudder. Support comes from The Matches, Valencia and The Status, and tickets go on sale on this Friday, July 18th at bayside.ducatking.com. For full dates, please refer to www.myspace.com/bayside.

The band are currently in the studio in Los Angeles recording new album Shudder, set for release on September 30, 2008. Produced by David Schiffman (Weezer, Jimmy Eat World, Johnny Cash), Shudder is the follow-up to 2007’s critically-acclaimed release The Walking Wounded, which has just been re-released as a Gold Edition, including a DVD with behind-the-scenes documentary, live show and music videos.

“I honestly feel that this is the best Bayside album that we have ever made,” explains vocalist/guitarist Anthony Raneri. “It’s probably the most youthful and energetic of all of our records and we can’t wait to bring that electricity to the stage on the Involuntary Movement Tour this Fall. The Matches, Valencia and the Status are all bands that we hold close to our hearts and when we’re enjoying ourselves on a tour, that excitement comes out on stage. I can’t explain how ready we are to get this album out and start this tour.”
