For further information about the album please read on…

Right on cue, the third annual report from Chicago’s Disappears is submitted for your consideration. Following up on the acclaimed Guider album released just over a year ago, and with new drummer Steve Shelley now fully integrated into the group, these songs were again forged into proper shape during live shows before heading to the studio and the tape machine.

Never ones to dither or be indecisive, it’s a full-bore assault from the opening track to the last as Disappears attack these new songs with their usual relentless determination. It’s a sinister proceeding – debut Lux was preoccupied with death and endings while follow up Guider with protection – but Pre Language finds the band speaking on, of all things, love. Direct allusions to Philip K. Dick, James Baldwin, and Joan of Arc sit side by side with songs about the lows of life and the characters that permeate it.

Recorded in Hoboken New Jersey at Sonic Youth’s Echo Canyon West studio and mixed with John Congleton, Pre Language finds Disappears at their most potent and focused. The band has finally stepped into their own world and the results are thrilling.

The album is out today in the UK and Europe on Kranky.

Press Quotes for Guider:

“Before, they sounded like they could pummel a song into the ground, but here it feels like Disappears shoot their music into the sky.”

– All Music Guide

Guider is an intriguing, viscerally stirring study in contemporary post-punk that holds attention like a fox in a headlight beam.”

– Drowned in Sound

With so many influences in the mix, the end result could easily have been an incohesive mess, and it’s a testament to both the playing and production that Guider’s execution is watch-spring tight from start to finish.” – The Quietus

“Stand next to a jet that’s firing its engines in preparation for takeoff, and you’ll get an idea of the whooshing momentum and walls of tremolo sound that Disappears generates on the space-rock episode Guider.” – Chicago Tribune

Guider invites listenersʼ touch with its seductively rounded edges, but sends them away with skinned fingertips.– Onion A.V. Club

Guiderʼs sound is gigantic and singular.” – Aquarium Drunkard
