Montreal alternapop outfit High Dials have been building their reputation with such well-received albums as 2003’s A New Devotion, 2005’s War of the Wakening Phantoms, and 2008’s Moon Country. The five-piece band, who cite the Zombies as their biggest influence — they even got to work with head Zombie Rod Argent on their 2007 EP, The Holy Ground — recorded their latest, Anthems for a Doomed Youth (Rainbow Quartz, November 2010), in a house that just might have been haunted. But there’s no need to be scared of their mellifluous, harmonic sound, featured on such tracks as “Teenage Love Made Me Insane” and “Bedroom Shadows,” with Trevor Anderson on rhythm guitar and vocals, Robbie MacArthur on lead guitar, George Donoso III on drums, Eric Dougherty on keyboards, and David Jalbert on bass. The High Dials will be at Fontana's on Saturday night at 10:00, preceded by Blackbells (8:00) and DeVries (9:00) and followed by a free late-night dance party hosted by Future Relative.
