The Dears fourth album Missiles is due out next week (10/21) via Dangerbird Records. The forthcoming CD supposedly was marked by creative tensions within the band. By the time the recording process was complete, most of the supporting musicians had left, leaving only core members Murray Lightburn and Natalia Yanchak. Since then, the band has recruited five other members to join them on tour, including a few dates with Secret Machines in support of Missiles. Unfortunately no Austin dates so far.
Here is the video for the first single, "Money Babies".
