Dears

PlugInMusic.com is giving away The Dears' 7" singles – Side A / Money Babies Side, Side B / Halfmast and a copy of Missiles to one lucky fan. Enter now for your chance to win!

MTV2's "Subterranean" blog premiered The Dears' video for first single, "Money Babies," off their fourth LP, Missiles, due in a matter of days (October 21) on Dangerbird Records. The video can be watched below prior to making its on-air debut Thursday, October 23, on MTV's indie-rock showcase "Subterranean."

The semi-prophetic video brimming with dark imagery of a junkyard wasteland, can be interpreted in many ways but ironically (and eerily) coincides with the current economic state of the world. Director Anton Josef captured visuals of unruly characters and money being burned as paper fuel while the songs' catchy lyrics, "Our money is elastic," repeat.

The Dears have kicked off a brief tour of select cities, prior to joining The Secret Machines for a two-week run. The septet will stop in NYC during CMJ to perform two shows: Wednesday, October 22 at Maxwell's and Thursday, October 23 at Hiro Ballroom. MTV will host the Montréalers one more time in their Virtual World, for a meet and greet with their fans on October 23.
