The Dear Hunter Announce ‘Act V’

    The Dear Hunter will release Act V on September 9th. Pre-orders are now up and you can stream the new song, “Gloria,” below. The band also announced a new set of tour dates which are also on their website.

    Act V, however, will be the final ‘rock’ record in the Act series. This may read as though I am abandoning the project, one record early – but the truth is simply that in knowing what Act VI means to the series, and what its story has to say – presenting it in the same form as Acts I-V would be short selling the creative opportunity it presents.

    2 Act Dear Hunter albums in 1 year? Someone wake me. If its half as good as Act IV it will be absolutely stellar.

    Don't ask me why.

    I figure this may be a good place to ask this question that no one has ever been able to answer for me: What exactly IS the storyline (this grander world that Casey refers to in his letter) that exists in the Dear Hunter Acts albums??? I am so intrigued,,,

    Here's some interpretations:

    The Complete Story Song By Song: - The Acts - Lake and the River

    I'm not super well versed on the story myself, but that seems like a good source. :)

    Holy shit! Saw the info on the instagram yesterday at night, but didn't notice there's a song! This is the best news and huge surprise, and what's more, the song is brilliant! Just top notch in my opinion, love it!

    In addition to the link someone posted in reply to your post, this is also a very good read(has one article for all of the Acts): *prognotes: The Dear Hunter’s <i>Acts</i>, Part I (<i>The Lake South, The River North</i>)

    who told you this room exists? Supporter

    So the days before, Lifetime Members received a postcard in the mail hyping the impending announcement. If anyone is curious to see and hear it's message, I took a video here:

    I'm so obsessed with Act IV. I can't believe this is happening. And thanks for already making me curious about Act VI!
