Following the ambitious collection that is The Color Spectrum and a more traditional, stand-alone LP with Migrant, The Dear Hunter have finally returned to their beloved Act album series, with Act IV: Rebirth In Reprise to make landfall on September 4 through the band's longtime label home of Equal Vision Records. We've heard a couple excellent cuts from the 15-track effort thus far, and today, the band shared a brand new track, titled “Wait,” (via Gigwise). Opening with a surprising dubstep-like pulsation, the song quickly becomes more familiar with Casey Crescenzo's unmistakable vocals and storytelling.
You can stream “Wait” below where you'll also find the band's upcoming U.K. tour dates. Pre-orders for Act IV: Rebirth In Reprise are ongoing. It's definitely an album you'll want to pick up if you're a fan of The Dear Hunter, or just great music in general.
