  • More new music from upcoming releases: Montreal band The Dears return with a new album, Times Infinity Volume One, on September 25th via Dangerbird. Frontman Murray Lightburn says he thought about ending the band after their last album, 2011's Degeneration Street. "When you start a band, you never think of the end. When we began work on this album, it was a process that consumed us completely, harkening back to our earliest days. In turn, the record became about sentimentality but in the face of great uncertainty; the concept of eternal love and all its fragility." Stream the first single, "I Used to Pray For the Heavens to Fall", below. [Under the Radar]
