On the release of PHASES Deluxe, lead-singer Danielle McTaggart said: “Writing the ‘Phases’ record was an incredible journey. It definitely earned it’s name for the highs and lows we experienced. We’ve always been on a wild ride with Dear Rouge and we didn’t want it to be finished just yet. When we started recording PHASES, we had the deluxe version in mind and the songs we’re releasing today were already part of the story of PHASES – written and recorded at the same time. These songs truly belong on the record, and there is no better time to put these out than on the one-year anniversary of PHASES. We hope fans enjoy this deluxe version!”


Formed in 2012, Vancouver natives Danielle and Drew McTaggart (Dear Rouge) are partners in life and music that channel their energies into honing their sinewy, hook-driven indie rock. Since their debut in 2015 with critically-acclaimed album, Black To Gold, Dear Rouge has become one of Canada’s greatest acts with over 8 million streams globally, a #1 most added single at Canadian Alternative radio and an array of impressive accolades, including a Juno award for “Breakthrough Group of the Year” and the SOCAN Songwriter prize for their single “I Heard I Had”. Their latest single, “Live Through The Night” spent four consecutive weeks at number one at alternative radio in Canada. Dear Rouge has seen a number of stages and festivals including Ottawa Blues Fest, Skookum, Festival D’ete and more, and has opened for Phantogram, Arkells, and LIGHTS. The band recently wrapped up their North American Tour with dates across Canada and West USA. The band will be on tour with Arkells at the end of March on the West USA for the Rally Cry tour.
