The Dear Hunter will celebrate the release of their forthcoming album, Migrant, with a special two-night event at The Sinclair in Cambridge. Led by mastermind Casey Crescenzo, the hometown favorites will perform at the new Harvard Square hotspot on Friday, March 29 and Saturday, March 30. Tickets for each of the shows, which will also feature openers Naive Thieves, are now on sale through Ticketmaster for $16.

Migrant, The Dear Hunter’s fifth studio release and follow-up to 2011’s The Color Spectrum, will hit stores on April 2. It will mark the band’s first release on Cave & Canary Goods, Crescenzo’s imprint label within Equal Vision Records. The band recorded Migrant earlier this year at Vu Du Studios in Long Island, New York with producer Mike Watts.

“When I started writing this record, I made sure to limit myself to an instrument and my voice,” explained Crescenzo in a press release. “I didn’t want to jump into the current of production I always had before – predetermining the final path of each song from its inception. Instead, I let the music take as natural a course as it could. What felt at first to be the seeds of the starkest songs, grew into some of the most lush and beautiful arrangements I had written to date. Keeping the heart of the music so transparent was liberating, and the result is, at the very least, the most creatively rewarding record yet.”

The Dear Hunter have also announced the release of their new DVD concert film, “The Color Spectrum Live”. Scheduled to hit stores on March 12, the film captures the band’s one-night-only performance of The Color Spectrum from start to finish at the Somerville Theatre last May.
