The Dear Hunter have announced their long-awaited new album “Antimai” will be coming out July 1, 2022. Within the concept of “The Indigo Child,” “Antimai” acts as an atlas of the fictional world’s last remaining metropolis, exploring its social hierarchy from the outside in. The band have shared the first single “Ring 7 – Industry.” Watch the official lyric video through the youTube player below:
Casey Crescenzo commennts: “We first began playing this song in late 2019, touring an unfinished version in the hopes of slowly introducing listeners to the sound of an album we’d hoped to release the following year. Having recorded a majority of our instrumentation in January and early February of 2020, we took a short break with the intent of reconvening in mid March to wrap up work.
Things evolved as they did, and the record’s future became more and more uncertain with the decreasing likelihood of a traditional promotional/touring cycle ahead. But what started as a demoralizing situation slowly metamorphosed into an amazing opportunity to revisit the record with a completely fresh perspective. And slowly, piece by piece, we completed “Antimai” without any concern of when, or if, it would ever be heard—focusing solely on making a record we wanted to listen to.”
