The Dears - Gang of Losers leak

So the upcoming Dears album, due in stores late August, has leaked. So far I've only heard four songs but a friend keeps taunting me on AIM about how he has the whole thing and it's great. But it won't be long until I virtually strong-arm him into sharing it with me. For those of you unfamiliar with The Dears, they're another great Canadian act. Formed in 2000 by Murray Lightburn, one of the few black lead singers in the indie world, they play "darkly romantic" rock that combines "Britrock influences and soulful, Bowiesque vocals" with dramatic orchestral sweep.

Random fact: Murray named his kid Neptune Lightburn. I'm going to take that as a big ol' shoutout to the best show on television, Veronica Mars because she lives in Neptune, CA.

The Dears - Whites Only Party
The Dears - Death or Life, We Want You
The Dears - Fear Made the World Go Round

Very few blogs have posted these songs so it's practically a Red Blondehead exclusive (for now)!

Update: My friend was kind enough to share the whole thing. It's good.

Gang of losers is great. From, "Bandwagoneers," to "Ticket to Immortality," it's all great. There isn't a bad song on there. I suggest you get that friend give you that record. It's very different than," No Cities Left," and "End of a hollywood bedtime story," is just a shadow in their past.
