Why hello and welcome to The Music Meetup (formerly known as Discovery Corner), brought to you by Levi’s!
Today we gather to head bang and be angry with Dearly Beloved. This Toronto-based hardcore/ metal/ punk/ rock’n’roll band throw that stereotype of sweet ole’ Canadians out the window and, pardon my language, fuck shit up on stage!
Though when BTRtoday spoke with frontman Rob Higgins (bass/vocals) all his Canadian courtesy was very much still there. However, in their sound you can feel the strong passion, anger, and frustration that the band is letting go through their music–they straight-up don’t give one shit if you have a problem with that or not.
Comprised of Higgins (vocals/bass), Niva Chow (vocals/theramin), Bobby Haseby (guitar), Lysh Haugen (guitar) and Aaron Morrice (drums), the band released a brand new album, “Admission,” just this year (produced by Dictators guitarist, Daniel Rey-The Ramones/Misfits) and it’s more badass than you could ever imagine! Filled with dark undertones and sinister feels, the melodic, yet eerie guitar riffs combined with the back-and-forth lyrical battle between Higgins and Chow create tunes that are severely head bang-inducing.
Make sure to check out Dearly Beloved on all social media pages to keep up-to-date on what they’re cooking up next and if they’re playing near you.
