Dear Boy have released a new single entitled “(On My) Mind.” About the song band member Ben Grey adds, “”(On My) Mind'” is about distance, and the complexities of being in love and apart. Missing someone is a whole other level of consciousness. Extreme joy and pain. A swirl of memory, dream and fantasy. But these are things that connect us to the people that we love and they’re precious. Good and bad.” “(On My Mind)” is lifted from the band’s debut full-length album due next year on the band’s new label home, Last Gang Records. The Los Angeles band has also announced a West Coast tour which will include shows in Seattle, Phoenix, Portland, San Diego and a hometown show at The Troubadour.
In 2020 Dear Boy completed their debut full length album and in 2021, signed with Last Gang Records. The release will be Dear Boy’s first collaboration with the legendary label. Produced by the band and mixed by Tony Hoffer (Air, Phoenix, M83), the record also features contributions from Day Wave, Hazel English, Rogue Wave, AFI & Ian Hultquist of Passion Pit.
The Los Angeles band is comprised of Ben Grey (vocals / guitar), Austin Hayman (guitar), Keith Cooper (drums) and Lucy Lawrence (bass / vocals). With three EP’s and a number of singles, the band has toured with The Psychedelic Furs, James, Pete Yorn, Day Wave, Rogue Wave, Sunflower Bean, DMA’s & Peter Murphy. 2019 also saw the band performing at the Corona Capital festival in Mexico City and recording a live set on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic.
