Canadian garage rock duo Dearly Beloved have announced that their new full length, Times Square Discount is due to drop on October 25th via Future Shock Records.  Vocalist Rob Higgins had this to say about their approach to writing and recording the new record:

“(Time Square Discount) is a rabbit-hole record,” and one partially born of “binge-ing on Kubrick and drugs…the way Kubrick made films, man – they would have teams go out and do short research missions about shit, live places for months. Gather shit, learn shit. When you’re playing shows, you have all this time off, so it was, like, ‘Well, we could just get loaded all the time or we could research everything and go see it.’ We would be on tour in the Ukraine or in Arizona, going down every rabbit hole associated with said place and then researching the living shit out of it and taking notes, and those things became lyrics and the basis for songs.” 

Ahead of the LP’s street date the band have released a video for lead single Race to the Bottom.
