The momentum is building in anticipation of Disappears’ brand new album release, Guider. Release date: 24 January
European tour dates have been confirmed for January with the promise of a UK show too, so stay tuned. Meanwhile, the Chicago rockers have released a free MP3 “Superstition” from the new album for all to share. If you would like to make this MP3 available for stream or download online, include it in upcoming podcasts or play it on the radio then you can request it from me.
Here is some more information about the new album:
2010 was a busy year for Disappears. They finally saw their debut album Lux released, they did a fair amount of touring, and they recorded this new album. Having worked these new songs into proper shape in the live setting, they went into the studio and ripped through the recordings, using the first take on all but one of the tracks. And Disappears are so much about the NOW and not the THEN that they recorded over the same reels of tape that they used for their first album.
“Guider” means to control or influence, which is what all the songs ended up being about in one form or another. Notably featuring Steve Shelley on drums. This is a heads down, blinders on, damn the distractions, forward driving, controlled squall.
