The Dears: Europe Bound

Published: 2003-12-08
Canadian rockers The Dears will not be seen on stage in Canada for at least four months. The band is not abandoning their homeland or their fans; they are simply branching out to other parts of the world. Band leader Murray Lightburn said that the band is planning on doing an international tour and The Dears want to return to the studio to make a new CD before hitting the stage in Canada once again.

Lightburn compares his songs to children. He says that once a song is completed it's like sending your kids out into the world. You never know what will happen. And as for the type of children Lightburn and the Dears have, "I'd like to think our kids would be the weird/disturbed kids in class," said Lightburn.
