I may, or may not, have just gasped and then ‘squee’d when I read the announcement that came across this morning. Unbeknownst to me (and I can’t be alone), The Dear Hunter were working on both Act IV and Act V at the same time, and are prepared to release Act V this fall!

For those who don’t know, this masterpiece of auditory storytelling follows the life of a man simply known as “The Dear Hunter” (at least that’s what I call him) as he navigates life during the early 1900s. Act I starts with his birth, and as the story continues from there, we find him falling in and out of love, learning about his identity, being a soldier in WWI and eventually becoming the mayor of a town. The entire sequence is filled with symphonic sounds, killer hooks, and a story that takes at least 100 listens to really grasp (seriously, I’m still finding little tidbits in futher listens). What will happen next? You’ll have to buy the album to find out!

Did I mention I’m beyond ecstatic about this?
