Disappears Hit Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal on World Tour

Disappears Hit Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal on World Tour
After announcing the new Pre Language album, Chicago Krautrock warriors Disappears have wasted no time planning their year. With new drummer Steve Shelley (from some band called Sonic Youth) in tow, we're happy to announce a massive load of Disappears tour dates.

Like so many good things, the tour kicks off in Canada, where the band will start their tour with San Francisco psych peddlers the Fresh & Onlys in Vancouver on February 18. From there, they'll head down the West Coast before jumping the ocean for a European stint.

Then, in April, Disappears will return to North America for a tour with Lotus Plaza that includes Canadian stops in Toronto on April 15 and Montreal on April 16. Two New York shows will also see the group performing with Lee Ranaldo. Now all someone needs is an elaborate scheme to invite Thurston and Kim there without each other knowing, and viola -- instant reunion.

All tour dates are available below. Pre Language will be available on March 1 via Kranky.
