Disappears have created a tour EP comprising new material from which they have generously given me permission to giveaway one track for all to hear. To get your hands on the track entitled ‘Radiation’, feel free to get in touch and I will gladly provide. We can expect further giveaways as well as a brand new video as we get closer to the shows. Meanwhile, if you still haven’t seen the video for the track ‘Superstition’ from their latest album Guider, what are you waiting for? Head on over to Youtube to view it!
Curious about their new album? Here is some more info, feel free to get in touch if you want to get your hands on it.
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. This is a heads down, blinders on, damn the distractions, forward driving, controlled squall.
