The Dears: Never Destroy Us

The Dears.jpgNever Destroy Us is the name of a new documentary about the Montreal indie band, The Dears. It airs on CBC television at 7pm tonight (and will be posted at music.cbc.ca as of Monday).

Before Montreal became known around the world for its indie rock scene, The Dears were already carving out a place for themselves. The film follows the band from its beginnings in the early 90s, through the many changes in band members, all the way to a sold-out concert series in Mexico.

Natalia Yanchak is The Dears keyboardist and singer. She also produced the film.
Murray Lightburn is band's lead vocalist, and he directed Never Destroy Us.

They talked with Elizabeth Robertson about reliving their 17-year journey in the band in making the documentary.
