    It must suck to be a music fan that is also a student. With school just letting out over the past few weeks for high school and college students, summer is only very recently kicking into high gear. But then there are all these great tour announcements for treks slated for September, at the height of back-to-school season. While you can go to school and see shows, you may find yourself wishing for September and fall to hurry up and get here so you can take in all these RAD shows. Like The Dear Hunter, who will be joined by a string quartet for seven shows.

    Most shows will be seated and will highlight the more lush, orchestral side of the band as they perform songs from their entire catalog. The band will also be joined by special guest performers on each date. Additionally, The Dear Hunter will also be performing at Riot Fest in Chicago and Denver, as well as several solo shows by frontman Casey Crescenzo along the way.

    But wait, there's more! Such as a value add.

    Fans purchasing tickets to the September headline shows will also receive a download of The Migrations Annex, a six-song EP of additional tracks recorded during the studio sessions for The Dear Hunter's new album, Migrant, which dropped in April, as well as a special event poster.

    It's not The Dear Hunter's first time performing with strings -- they're also featured on the band's new The Color Spectrum Live, DVD, featuring a beautifully filmed 2012 performance of their 36-song, 9-EP collection The Color Spectrum in its entirety.

    For a taste of what's in store this fall, watch these two videos, which were culled from the live DVD.
