Label: Equal Vision Records

The Act series is The Dear Hunter's six album concept series chronicling the story of a boy at the turn of the century, only referred to as "The Dear Hunter." From the beginning, it was a high-concept project: Crescenzo mapped out multi-page treatments for a six-album story arc about the birth, life, and abrupt death of a boy, set at the dawn of the 20th century. Act I: The Lake South, The River North, Act II: The Meaning of, and All Things Regarding Ms. Leading and the third installment, Act III: Life and Death were released between 2006 and 2009 and Act IV: Rebirth In Reprise was released in 2015. Like Act IV, Act V features Bay Area musicians the Awesöme Orchestrawith orchestration written by Crescenzo. Crescenzo explains, "these two albums, Act IV and V, were written and recorded much in the same time frame - though each album retains it's own unique identity, tone, and experience. Act V, however, will be the final 'rock' record in the Act series. This may read as though I am abandoning the project, one record early - but the truth is simply that in knowing what Act VI means to the series, and what it's story has to say - presenting it in the same form as Acts I-V would be short selling the creative opportunity it presents."
