The Dear Hunter Confirms Nationwide Tour With Anthony Green * Complete Color Spectrum CD Boxset Now Available


The Dear Hunter just confirmed a nationwide trek with Anthony Green (Circa Survive’s frontman). Kicking off in January, the 5-week tour in support of The Color Spectrum follows the band’s current run with Manchester Orchestra. See below for more details.

The epic, 9-EP project The Color Spectrum claimed two separate spots on Billboard‘sHeatseekers” chart upon its debut, with the complete collection reaching an impressive #9, and the 11-song CD version (featuring select music from each EP) debuting at #32. SPIN calls it “a sprawling, heady mix, merging some of the challenging piano work of latter day Ben Folds Five with a bit of Muse-y, glam rock melodrama.” The limited edition vinyl box set sold out shortly after release, prompting the recent issue of a 3-disc CD box set.

The Color Spectrum consists of 36 songs inspired by the colors of the spectrum, specifically Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet, with White and Black included as bookends. It was written and recorded as frontman Casey Crescenzo traveled across the U.S., documenting every step of the process as he worked with several producers and musicians along the way. Included within that group is Manchester Orchestra, Brendan Brown from The Receiving End of Sirens, Mike Watts (who has worked with As Tall As Lions and he mixed the band’s Act III: Life And Death), and Steve Haigler (Brand New, As Tall As Lions, Quicksand). A DVD featuring over two hours of footage from this period is now available as part of the CD Box Set.

The Color Spectrum is available in the following formats:

  • (Vinyl) Complete Collection Limited Edition Vinyl Box Set, containing nine 10″ colored vinyls, a 16-page booklet, digital download card of the complete collection
  • (CD) Complete Collection CD, containing 3 discs featuring all 36 songs, DVD with over 2 hours of footage detailing the making of the album, 52-page booklet
  • (CD) Complete Collection Limited Edition Deluxe CD Box Set, sold in a deluxe wooden box, containing an exclusive linoleum woodblock hand-pulled print, numbered and signed by Crescenzo and designer Cameron Thorne, 3 discs featuring all 36 songs, DVD with over 2 hours of footage detailing the making of the album, 52-page booklet
