Published Aug 27, 2013Last year, Toronto alt-rock outfit Dearly Beloved released their album Hawk vs Pigeon through eOne here in Canada, and now they've signed to Aporia for the release in the UK, the U.S. and Europe. This beefed-up version includes different track sequencing, new artwork, and a bonus cut called "Never Tell the Truth" featuring Sloan's Patrick Pentland.
Clocking in at a little more than two minutes, "Never Tell the Truth" is a burst of punk-inspired energy and meaty bass grooves. Stream it below.
"I have always championed Dearly Beloved and I am a huge fan of their live show," Pentland said in a statement. "Their songs are the perfect blend of the excitement of punk rock, the sing-a-long-ability of pop with a dash of muso/prog rock noodling, thanks in large part to Higgins' amazing bass skills. High powered riffs and melody lines that make me jealous."
Hawk vs Pigeon (Redux) is out on October 14. See the band's overseas tour schedule here.
