You can read a history of the band and also watch "A Visual History" where Metzger himself explains the dissolving of Dear and the Headlights and what has lead him to start his new band. Not only that, but there's a behind-the-scenes video from Metzger too with some clips of songs included. Check them out now at the official website or in the replies.
