It’s the news that fans of The Dear Hunter have been waiting for. The video for “What It Means To Be Alone” from their critically acclaimed ‘Act III: Life and Death’ (Triple Crown Records) will make its world premiere on MTV2’s “Subterranean” program this Sunday, October 25 at 1:00 AM ET/PT and will start a rotation on MTVu and will be added to MTV’s website beginning next week.

Singer/pianist/guitarist/lyricist/multi-instrumentalist Casey Crescenzo directed and produced the animated video at his home studio in Providence, RI along with Glenn Thomas of Synapse Design, who also handled the art direction, design and layout of ‘Act III: Life and Death’s’ packaging. Work on the video continued once the band’s headlining tour started on September 23.

“It was very rewarding to finally parallel visuals with the audio,” says Crescenzo. “We worked very hard to compliment the tone of the song and I couldn’t be more happy with the result.”

The Dear Hunter – Crescenzo, Andy Wildrick (guitar), Erick Serna (guitar), Nick Crescenzo (drums), Nate Patterson (bass)—is currently criss-crossing the U.S. with Thursday and will start another round of headlining dates on October 25 – with Annuals and Steve Brodsky (Cave In) opening–before starting up with Thrice on November 15.
