Who says prog is dead? People think that concept albums stopped being recorded in the '80s, with their golden heyday being
in the '70s. But Casey Crescenzo, the songwriter at the center of The Dear Hunter, founded the group as an outlet for his
need to create concept records that delve deep into the characters he writes songs about. His latest, Act III: Life and Death,
closes a triumvirate about a boy who grows up and becomes a man. Get concert
tickets to see the band live.
The Dear Hunter began because Casey Crescenzo needed a place where he could begin exploring his own musical ideas. He had
formerly been known for working with the emo band The Receiving End of Sirens, but wanted to explore in-depth concept albums,
and found that the best way to do that was to go it alone. His first three LPs have been concept albums charting the childhood,
adolescence and adulthood of a single man.
The Dear Hunter is steadily developing a fan base among rock fans who want to hear prog make a comeback. Check out Casey
when he brings his latest songs to Austin's Emo's
