The Dear Hunter was originally intended as a vehicle for music Crescenzo had written that didn't fit with the sound of The Receiving End of Sirens. The idea was to take the creative overflow from The Receiving End of Sirens and bottle it up into something that I could keep with me.
There was never a plan to take it on the road, or to release it. It was only when things with them went awry that I was given the opportunity to really make it into a traditional sort of thing. He created 10 copies on burned CDs that were circulated amongst his friends and posted online for download.
While elements and characters featured on the demos would reappear on the subsequent Acts, Crescenzo has confirmed that there was a transformation in how he represented these themes and persons; while the story had its origins in his personal life, the Acts removed most autobiographical elements in favor of fiction: The reason I originally wrote it is obviously because I was bitter.
The demos were almost all thematically interchangeable with one another. They are all kind of bitter and about a guy falling in love with a prostitute and stuff.
When people call those demos an album, I just think it is a little ridiculous, because if I was to release that, I would be ashamed of myself. There is nothing to it — it's just one subject. I went through something with a girl, and like most immature artist people, you write about it and complain a lot And that is why I didn't want anyone to hear those songs from the demo I think I did what any writer does — they include themselves in their work to an extent as much as they can, since that is your only real link to humanity — what you experience.
So if I am going to try to make anything realistic, all I have to go on is what I learned on my own It is more that every character is a collection of experiences and feelings I have had about people in the past. He expanded the scope of the project to a six-album  story set at the dawn of the 20th century.
The story revolved around the birth, life, and abrupt death of a boy known only as "The Dear Hunter. I do not think he does a single good thing or smart thing in any of the stories. The first act is really about the relationship of the mother and son, and what she has to go through to keep him alive and thriving.
She decides to raise him removed from harsh realities, and tries to abandon her life as well- but her selflessness soon turns her back to old habits, and she ruins herself for him. I think the reason I wanted it to be set in that time because as the story goes on, things will coincide with world events where starting at that point is really important.
The architecture of the time, the colors — all of that influences the songs, but at the same time, it is not supposed to be anything beyond fiction. It is supposed to be surreal — it is not like I am writing a concept album about some prostitute that I read a book about.
Shortly after the release of Act I, Casey recruited Luke Dent of the recently split band Faraway for vocals and keyboards and Erick Serna as a second guitarist. Luke brought in his brother Sam on drums and Erick brought long-time friend Josh Rheault in to play bass.

The band filmed a music video for the song "The Church and the Dime". John was selected to do the illustrations. He also stated that Act IV would most likely not be seen for quite some time. Prior to recording the album, Crescenzo expressed his excitement over working with Watts and further noted that I don't know what the listening public will think, and the last thing I want to do is make any declarations in an attempt to influence the listener.
What I can say, is that I haven't been more happy, or felt more creative in years, and I am truly anxious to push myself, and my music, to places I still haven't ventured, and to create the best possible album I can.
Crescenzo remarked that the non-conceptual nature of Migrant presented a new challenge: So I think that was really exciting; it was really refreshing.
Ninety-nine percent of it Migrant was written on piano, so I think it felt right to keep that a focal point. But also, I think, it was a conscious decision to make it a slightly more stripped-down record, as far as the scope and the grandeur goes.
The idea was to keep the tone in general a little bit smaller with not so many doubles and big rock guitar and heavy spots on the record As you double vocals, they lose their intimate inflection, and whatever transparent emotion that's trying to be conveyed in them is washed out, which can be a good thing.
For this record, I think it was important not to do that.
