CONTEST - The Dears


Thanks to Tristen at Filter for helping me run this contest!
We are giving away one copy of Missiles and an exclusive 7-inch single featuring “Money Babies” and “Halfmast.” All you have to do to win is enter a comment about The Dears on this post.
A winner will be chosen by a random number generator at noon on 11/7/08.

"The Montréalers' fourth full-length album is a beautiful collection of sonic masterpieces, further affirming their foothold on the celebrated indie-rock scene they helped erect."
– Glide Magazine


"Missiles is equal parts swirling electricity and angelic chorus. Its songs start out as familiarities, but end as head trips."
– Wired


"Missiles emerges as the best album of The Dears' musical career to date."
– Revolt Media


The Dears have unveiled the first visual offering to emerge from their sonic magnum opus, Missiles. The brand new video for "Money Babies" is as thoughtful as their arrangements, touching on ever-prevalent topics like material wealth, poverty, and class division. Director Anton Josef captures the band's powerful statement in a minimalist way, allowing the music to speak for itself while forcing the viewer to stop and think. Check out the new "Money Babies"
