The Dear Hunter, Act II: The Meaning Of, And All Things Relating Ms. Leading

U.S., 2007.

Starting out as a secondary project of Casey Crescenzo, former member of the post-hardcore band The Receiving End of Sirens, The Dear Hunter are generally categorized as alternative/progressive rock. This project uses a wider variety of instrumentation, probably standing somewhere between The Mars Volta and Coheed and Cambria. It is a conceptual album, the second part of a six-act story, focusing on a prostitute named Ms. Leading.
