#76241 Thank you Lake and the River

Posted casey crescenzo on 14 June 2011 - 08:12 PM

How to start this..?

For the past 5 years I have been working without pause on trying to be the best I could be at this strange thing I do- doing my best to power through any hurdle that presented itself, be it personal or professional. I have always written from the heart, and done my best to remain transparent as an artist and an individual.

You guys have been with me the whole way, and have given me such amazing inspiration throughout this strange birth of a 'career'. Simply writing here is not enough to show you how grateful I am, and I wish there was a more tangible way for me to show you, but I just want you to know in your hearts that it means the world to me, and that I know for a fact I would not be anywhere close to where I am if it weren't for the unwavering support and love you have shown me.

It is incredibly humbling that you have all been so kind to me, and I hope with every future release you feel more and more gratitude, because it is most certainly due to you.

Thank you guys so much.

This is for Tara. I drew it last week, and have been valiantly trying to finish it.
I wish my imagination was always this kick ass...

#115873 So I walked into work today...

Posted Chzn8r on 30 December 2013 - 06:58 PM

Like any other day. I rolled in around 9:30am for our daily stand-up meeting between teams. I walked into the room and glanced around to see who was there, and noticed one of my coworker's shirts had some BIG BOLD writing on it. He has a flare for wearing cool things that immediately get your attention so I focused in to start reading it.

"This body's not a a temple, it's a prison."

For a split second I was like "Oh that's crazy, that's a lyric in a Dear Hunter song. Hey wait..." and as I surveyed the room, I spotted 6 people wearing various Dear Hunter shirts and I started laughing hysterically.

Apparently I was the second victim of a surprise "dress like someone on the team" day XD We had previously dressed in flannel and blue jeans to mimic one of the more outdoorsy guys in the office.

Coincidentally, but not that unlikely (maybe a 1 in 4 chance?), I was wearing one of my TDH shirts. I'm in the brown:

Casey, I'm curious on why you chose this song to put out first, compared to Wait or Waves which seem like the obvious singles?

Hey there....

I think the key is that this isn't a traditional album, and this isn't a traditional single approach. Putting out this song first is much more about reaching out to fans of the band... more than attracting new people to the band.

I've heard a few people say that elements of the song were 'fan service', which is simultaneously a compliment and criticism, I feel... but in reality - this was one of the first tracks we really dug our teeth into while writing the record - and it is also about a pivotal moment in the story - so all of the musical allusions to previous and future songs/motifs arose from a place of genuine purpose.

It was also about putting my foot down about the type of band this is. There are going to be 3 to 3 1/2 minute songs in the band's discography - there are going to be mindlessly poppy songs - there will undoubtedly be choruses that are singable... but the purpose of the band is to be creative and organic, not to hit it big on the radio - and releasing a 9 minute track feels like the right first step to reclaiming that identity.
