Boston Band Crush Archived Article: Local Band Crush: Dear Leader

This article originally appears on Boston Band Crush ).
After local rock stars The Sheila Divine closed up shop, divine sheila Aaron Perrino wasted no time starting up his new project Dear Leader (This is a quite timely post as their moniker refers to the common honorary title used to describe Kim Jong-il, leader of The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, who may or may not have had a stroke recently).

Dear Leader are well known for their energetic, dynamic performances, recordings of which are traded around the Internet with the blessing of the band – http://www.archive.org/details/DearLeader.

Several studio tracks are available to your ears on Myspace. Although the band is on a relative hiatus since Perrino’s move to Belgium, they are returning to rock the socks off Boston for two days only at TT the Bear’s!
