The Dear Hunter is the opus of Casey Cresenzo, former vocalist, guitarist, and creative force behind Boston electro-posthardcore outfit, The Receiving End of Sirens. Cresenzo impressed many with his work in TREOS; their combination of traditional instruments with carefully synchronized electronic segments and anthemic hooks brought the band much acclaim from critics as well as establishing a dedicated fan base. But now all that is past and frankly, without Cresenzo, the band will never be the same. Fortunately he has decided to keep pursuing his musical endeavors through the Dear Hunter. Act I: The Lake South, the River North is the most well-orchestrated music I've heard in a long time. Each song, save for the short ones, is comprised of so many different segments. Within each song Cresenzo brings an amalgam of instruments together, including traditional, electronic, and orchestral (at times it seems like an entire symphony is backing him up).


If the post-voltaish formula described above seems a bit familiar...*cough* TSOAF *cough*...well, you're not alone in thinking that. But it's a really fun listen nonetheless. The The Lake South, the River North EP is supposed to be released next week. But rough demos of the upcoming full-length Ms. Leading have already leaked as well. So check it out...

Aww man, don't say that! Well, there goes the thread.

Really? I honestly haven't heard enough Panic At the Disco to compare (and probably never will). Admittedly, there's some pop-punk, emo-prog whatever overtones to this band...I still like it though.

I don't think they sound like Panic! at the disco. "City Escape" does sound heavily infuenced by Deloused era mars volta though. The music is alright, but I'm not sure about the guys vocals.

Not bad

it's not too bad. nothing I would listen to on a real regular basis, and definitely pretty far from panic

Nothing like Panic. City Escape is pretty cool, but like someone else said, vocals are blah. Music is good though.

I like it alot better than Receiving End of Sirens.

REoS was really good live but I just can't get into their recorded stuff.


the Dear Hunter has a little more depth.
I can hear a little bit of the TSOAF comparison.
some of it sounds like Ours.

Yep...this sounds absolutely and completely nothing like Panic! at the Disco.

It is rather interesting though. One song in, full opinion pending.

"The Only One That Didn't Fold" is a kick ass song.



There's a bunch of live clips on Youtube as well...

City escape and 1878 are the only songs on the EP I can really get in to. I prefer The receiving end of sirens anyway :tongue:
He owns live. I love his voice.

Thank you so much, I was just trying to hunt these down. I was about to start fiending for new material from them. I haven't turned off their album for three days.
