"Crescenzo has revealed the band’s next studio LP will be Act IV: Rebirth in Reprise, the first entry in his planned six-part Act series since 2009. Technically the follow-up to the band’s non-canonical 2013 album Migrant, Act IV continues the tale of a boy known only as The Dear Hunter. We last heard the story in Act III: Life and Death six years ago, itself preceded by 2007’s Act II: The Meaning of, and All Things Regarding Ms. Leading and 2006’s Act I: The Lake South, the River North. Crescenzo said the new record is “coming along swimmingly,” and is expected later this summer."
