Progressive pop/rock titans The Dear Hunter have partnered with Billboard to release a stream for their new album, Migrant. Migrant is the fifth full-length album for the group and their first LP to make a departure from the story told on previous albums Acts I-III and Dear Ms. Leading.

The stream of Migrant comes hot on the heels of the release of The Color Spectrum Live, a live recording of the band's nine EP collection released on March 12th.

Migrant will be released on April 2nd through Equal Vision records.

The album can be streamed in its entirety at http://www.billboard.com/articles/news/1554459/the-dear-hunter-migrant-exclusive-album-premiere

I'm loving it so far. It's no Act II, but it's still pretty.

so many of the vocal melodies on this sound so comfortable and familiar that i wouldn't be surprised if most of them were lifted straight out of classic pop hits. i guess that's a bad thing? but it does make for comfortable listening.

Best Release? Man, we're in totally different worlds.

The songs are all fine and dandy, but if you're hoping for the grand schemes and fun execution, I wouldn't get your hopes up if I were you.

Not their best work. All of the magic from act:I-III is pretty much gone.

Pre-order cancelled.

"Not their best work. All of the magic from act:I-III is pretty much gone. "

Were you paying attention when they said "This is a departure from Acts I-III?" That means "Yo this won't sound like Acts I-III so don't be expecting it to"

"he's actually turning into an asshole. seemed like a chill guy at first but now he's a dick to everybody."

I kind of agree. I liked it better when he only reviewed things that he liked. Now it seems like he's just out to shit on everyone.

I saw them last night- and despite the crappiest sound engineer I've ever experienced they were stellar. Didn't play a lot of new stuff but they put on a hell of a show for 2 1/2 hrs.

Okay fanboys, here's a response to your nitpicking, even though you all think your opinions are fact.

pre-order cancelled because dear hunter should stick to concept albums, where the music is interesting and not short and simple.

I said the MAGIC of Act:1-3 is gone, which for most long-term fans means this album is just not nearly as exciting as any of their other releases.

You don't have to believe it... you can keep spinning your DELAYED vinyl delivery a month from now when it finally gets to you. OR, you can listen to something that isn't a disguised attempt at breaking into a mainstream audience.

Noob users bringing the irony ITT. Yes, it is a huge step backwards, and is probably their worst album. But I don't chastise people for thinking their opinions are facts and then turn around and act like my opinion is fact. Logic. Like fuck, sooo many good songs on Color Spectrum that it's no wonder they ran out of good material.

My opinion is fact. I am the pinnacle of everything opinionated. I'm sorry you got offended because you're confused about my status in the world of sputnikmusic. Read about it sometime. I'm clearly a big deal.
