The Dear Hunter—band of former Receiving End Of Sirens frontman Casey Crescenzo—have exclusively revealed details to Altpress about their upcoming release, The Color Spectrum. It will be a collection of nine EPs inspired by the colors of the spectrum—specifically Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet, White and Black. Crescenzo recorded the EPs with various producers across the country and documented every step of the process. Manchester Orchestra frontman Andy Hull and Mike Watts (who mixed the Dear Hunter's 2009 release, Act III: Life And Death) are among the artists who collaborated with Crescenzo on the upcoming release.

The Color Spectrum will drop June 7 via Triple Crown Records in the following formats:

  • CD: Includes select music from each EP compiled onto one full-length CD (also available as a digital download)
  • Individual Digital EPs: Each song and EP from The Color Spectrum will be available individually as digital downloads
  • Full-length Vinyl: Same as the CD, but will be exclusively available at tour dates and Hot Topic
  • Limted Edition Deluxe Vinyl Box Set: Nine 10" vinyl records including all music and a digital download. Available only through mail order via Triple Crown

The Dear Hunter will tour to support the release in May with shows to be announced in the coming weeks. Check out the cover art below. (Casey Crescenzo drawing by Jackie Musial)
