about

Dearly Beloved isn’t here to provide you the easy answers to life’s hard questions, they are inviting you to join them on the journey, searching alongside. This is the difference between the cocksure swagger of inexperience and the assured posture of those who have already grasped that the universe doesn’t revolve around them. That’s not to suggest that Dearly Beloved bows and scrapes; they’re only too well versed in the value of the hip shake and the head fake. They know when to stick and when to move but they’re past anything to please and trying to prove. Dearly Beloved came to being in 2006, when Rob Higgins, songwriter-musician-producer-radio host and a group of like-minded friends with deep roots in the Toronto indie-rock community pooled their talents to define their own space. Higgins recalls, “it started strictly as a place to put the energy from dealing with the situation with my dad and his passing. I didn't just want to be in a band; I needed a place to put the energy that I deal with and music is my medium of choice. The mission was to create something authentic. It wasn't built for commercial avenues or to take over the world, just
to be an honest extension of life.”

They Will Take Up Serpents released under Anthem Records in Canada and the corresponding US LP release of Make It Bleed on Rounder Records is garnering rave reviews. In fact the band was invited to play at Boston radio station WFNX’s Christmas show opening for Franz Ferdinand and Airborne Toxic Event at the Opera House in Boston and at the WFNX DisOrientation week. After a North American tour with pixie-queen Juliette Lewis, the band hit the road for select dates with Die Mannequin as well as a coveted opening spot for My Chemical Romance's Toronto Edge 102.1 Jingle Bell Rock date. DB plans to be touring soon but in the meantime continues the process of writing their next LP in Toronto and Rancho de la Luna in Joshua Tree, studio home of desert rocker David Catching of Eagles of Death Metal and founding member QOTSA.

about

Dearly Beloved Toronto, Ontario

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. ... more
