VANCOUVER — Toronto-based five-piece Dearly Beloved bring an invigorating and melodic blend of punk and sludge rock to their latest album, Admission. Recorded at Dave Grohl’s Studio 606 on a custom built analog console, the organic feel of the album permeates every one of Admission’s 10 tracks. From the multi-part noise/psych charge of “Currents” to the bouncy, caterwauling lead single “I Tried To Leave,” Dearly Beloved make the most of their diverse yet singularly direct sound.
“Making this album was an incredible experience. One that brought light and love to some dark nights,” says bassist and co-lead vocalist Rob Higgins. “We are excited to share it with you and to get back out on the road this fall. All the love.”
Having toured and shared bills with the likes of July Talk, Cancer Bats, and Eagles of Death Metal, Dearly Beloved are set to cement their place as one of Canada’s rising stars in alternative hard rock.
Admission is available via Aporia Records on October 28th.AB, Admission, Alberta, BC, British Columbia, Dearly Beloved
