about

DEARLY BELOVED is a monster of a band. Echoing through the snowy valleys and the jagged edges of the Great White North come the rapid, urgent bass lines of Rob Higgins and the confrontational wails of co-vocalist Niva Chow. The pair drive their music forward like an apocalyptic oil tanker from some Mad Max-ian dystopic future. Bred for the road like a rabid beast, Dearly Beloved tours non-stop, opting for frequent jumps across the pond to the UK and Europe when their home base of Canada simply becomes too small for their ferocity.

Although fully-fledged progenitors of the stoner rock tradition, their influence has as much to do with Fear and Black Flag as it does Kyuss and Black Sabbath, mixing the speed and primal energy of hardcore punk with the brooding and psychedelic atmosphere of those in the stoner camp. All you need to know about Dearly Beloved is that they create a gigantic rumble, resonating somewhere deep within the earth below you: it shakes the foundations of your soul, and it might be one of the loudest sounds you’ve ever heard.

Their latest album “ENDURO”, available on LP worldwide via Aporia Records, was recorded in ten maniacal days at Joshua Tree’s Rancho de la Luna, overseen by Dave Catching (Eagles of Death Metal, ex-Queens of the Stone Age) with Higgins himself at the controls. The band spent another ten at Phoebe St., their own studio in Toronto, to finish tracking before the album was given a pristine mix down in Seattle by Grammy Award-winning producer, Adam Kasper (Queens of the Stone Age, Foo Fighters, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam). Enlisting an A-grade lineup of contributors such as Chris Goss (Masters of Reality) for some trebly and frantic guitar duties and Los Angeles-area drum guru Dave Elitch (Killer Be Killed, Antemasque, ex-Mars Volta) as well as Canadian indie rock lone wolf, Eamon McGrath, the record is a document of the ballistic energy laid to wax when four Canadians leave their winter climate for a psychedelic and drug-fuelled experience deep within the heart of the High Desert.

Like the band itself, "ENDURO" is road tested: Higgins broke the record in at full volume, blasting through the Mojave at top-speed to make sure the message was being accurately sent, right before returning home to Toronto to begin his rigid touring schedule. It’s a record built for breaking boundaries, both physical—volume, speed, strength—and musical, in the way it effortlessly mixes countless genres that all have one thing in common: that they’re as loud as fuck.

Track Name: Seven Plagues
AT LEAST WE’VE REACHED THE NEW FRONTIER
BUILT UNDER STARS WITH BRICKS OF FEAR
WHAT HANGS INSIDE THE DRAPES OF NIGHT
WILL OPEN UP HIS WINGS TO FLY

WE’VE GOT AN ADDRESS IN OUR HAND
LOST AND BURIED IN THE SAND
DEPENDING ON WHAT’S SAID AND DONE
WE MIGHT TURN OUR BACK ON EVERYONE

IN THE SHADOW OF A ROCK
YOU CAN HEAR THE BIRDS AND SNAKES TALK
THEY’RE ALL WHISPERING TO YOU
AND WHEN THE FIRE HITS THE EARTH
IT’S YOU WHO’S GOING TO FEEL IT FIRST
SEVEN PLAGUES

AT NIGHT I HEARD A WILD DOG HOWL
AND I PUT ON MY HEAVY BOOTS
ROSE OUT OF THE GROUND LIKE A TOWER
IT PULLED ME UP JUST LIKE A ROUTE
MANIFEST OUR DESTINY
to blame for why we’re even here
THE SUN WILL RISE IN THE MORNING
and dry us out of all our years

IN THE SHADOW OF A ROCK
YOU CAN HEAR THE BIRDS AND SNAKES TALK
THEY’RE ALL WHISPERING TO YOU
AND WHEN THE FIRE HITS THE EARTH
IT’S YOU WHO’S GOING TO FEEL IT FIRST
SEVEN PLAGUES
Track Name: The Guile of Pricks
IT’S A DEADLIER CRAFT, WHEN IT’S RUNNING FOR DAYS
IT CAN CHEW UP THE ROAD, WHEN YOU GET OUTTA THE WAY
YOU’RE A TRICK OF THE LIGHT, THERE’S NOTHING TO FIX
WHEN YOU’RE DRIVEN BY ASTRAL LIGHT AND THE GUILE OF PRICKS
THE GUILE OF PRICKS

BEWARE THE HEAT, TUCKED IN BEHIND THE WIND
LET THAT SEA OF RUSTED COPPERTONES, WASH YOU ASHORE AGAIN

CAN YOU LIGHT IT UP, CAN YOU LET IT GO
CAN YOU LET RUN, CAN YOU LET IT SHOW
CAN YOU ANSWER THE CALL, WITH EACH & EVERY MISTAKE
CAN YOU DO IT FOR LOVE, DO WHATEVER IT TAKES x 4

LET THAT SEA OF RUSTED COPPERTONES, WASH YOU ASHORE AGAIN
Track Name: Between Finger and Thumb
pick another moon and we’ll meet again
a trust in you and a hickory wind
a top ten view and bottomless eyes
you’re a short walk through the dark of night

between the ones and zeros
fingerprints of your heroes
gate the hum, your heart is a drum
and the ongoing battle

two blue words can turn the dirt
with two lips too beat up to hurt
like two feet walking like two birds talking

between the ones and zeros
fingerprints of your heroes
gate the hum, your heart is a drum
and the ongoing battle
between finger and thumb

broken bones and broken ties x 3

terra cotta smile and a burning smell
the big dipper is over a dome
under a bell
the distance is only hours but who devours
without fighting the odd broken piece of shell

gate the hum, your heart is a drum
and the ongoing battle
between finger and thumb
Track Name: All Sins Are Forgiven
NO KIND OF TREASURES
WORTH FIGHTING FOR, BITING FOR
ARE SPARED THE COST OF SURVIVING ONE’S OWN BATTLES
IN THE COMFORT OF BEING LOST

ALL SINS ARE FORGIVEN x 3

SEVEN YEARS AND FORTY POUNDS, SINCE WE WERE HERE
PONY BIRDS, PONY CROWDS STILL PICKING AT MY EAR
FOOTPRINT DIRT ON A LIMESTONE ROUND
TINFOIL TIPS OF TWENTY FOOT PALMS LOOKING DOWN

ALL SINS ARE FORGIVEN x 4
NOT FOREVER x 2
NOT FOREVER JUST AN ETERNITY x 3
NOT FOREVER
ALL SINS ARE FORGIVEN x 4
Track Name: Run For Your Life
SWIMMING IN JOINTS, ROLLING THE PCH
FUKUSHIMA BREEZE HAS ME COUNTING THE EIGHTS
RULE OF SEVEN AWAITS, RULE OF SEVEN AWAITS
REPEATING THE WORDS
DO WHATEVER IT TAKES
DO WHATEVER IT TAKES

DIE FOR YOUR LOVER, GO UNDER THE KNIFE
SING FOR YOUR SUPPER, RUN FOR YOUR LIFE

THERE’S A FREEDOM ROAD OUTSIDE THE PRISON GATE
MY UNDYING LOVE, YOU’RE CONDITIONED TO HATE
CONVENTION IS AS EVICTION DOES
PUTTING ME OUT, WHAT NEVER WAS
NEVER WAS

DIE FOR YOUR LOVER, GO UNDER THE KNIFE
SING FOR YOUR SUPPER, RUN FOR YOUR LIFE
Track Name: Ether Binge
under a spell drawn to the well
don’t bother me as you can see
its hold is cold as hell

under a spell drawn to the well
don’t bother me as you can see
its hold is cold as hell
