Matthew Dear, one of pop music’s most fascinating creative minds, announced a full band UK tour for December.

The new band sees Dear on vocals, guitar and electronics, with Greg Paulus (of No Regular Play) on trumpet, joined by Ian Chang (Drums), Samer Ghadry (Percussion, Vocals), and Danny Scales (Bass, Vocals). Jason Powers still handles the mixing desk and remains an integral a part of the team.

“I have never felt more certain of myself on stage as I now do,” Dear says. “There are so many ways to convey music in a live setting, and it has to impact the viewer theatrically.”
