Bryan Scary and The Shredding Tears U.S. tour continues.

"Bryan Scary's debut album rocks the candy shop, pillaging it for as many audio confections as possible. It's adventurous, fully fleshed, and catchy as hell.” – Pitchfork

“Do yourself a favor and give this a listen.” – Filter

“One of our favorite tracks is the grand “Desdemona's Leaving”, a rocking yet hyper romantical tune with ohhhs and ahhhhhs.” –

The -- ahem -- Scaryville, USA based quintet, Bryan Scary and The Shredding Tears, is currently in the midst of a full-scale nationwide tour sponsored by Filter Magazine. The band's debut album The Shredding Tears evokes the spirit of Tim Burton, Terry Gilliam, Roald Dahl and H.G. Wells, and also incorporates sinister elements of macabre and epic fantasticism reminiscent of early Alice Cooper Band, the Rocky Horror Picture Show soundtrack and Ziggy Stardust-era Bowie. But, it's not all campy darkness and theatricality -- fans of late-period Beatles, Electric Light Orchestra, Queen, XTC and The Kinks are also noting its huge hooks, stories, dynamic arrangements and strangely infectious lyrics. Check out “Desdemona’s Leaving Town”, a tune from The Shredding Tears HERE.

The folks at MySpace have also taken note, as Bryan Scary and The Shredding Tears was one of the site's featured artists in June. Not to be outdone, the celebrity blogger turned music tastemaker, Perez Hilton also had some choice words about Mr. Scary (LINK). Scary fans unable to catch one of the band's shows on this tour can find the group online. The band recently performed on GTFU Radio on June 11th for a live webcast (LINK). Keep your eyes peeled to for an exclusive session to be recorded June 18th.
