Disappears Announce 'Irreal,' Share New Single
Complex and conceptual Chicago outfit Disappears didn't manage to issue any new material in 2014, but it's been announced that the krautrock-loving crew will materialize again early next year via the release of their fifth full-length, Irreal.

A press release confirms that Kranky will have the album out in stores January 19. As with 2013's Era, the upcoming eight-song LP was recorded with producer John Congleton at Chicago's esteemed Electrical Audio facility.

Disappears' latest LP is described as "a master class in texture, pace and control," with the album apparently featuring "imperfect melodies" and post-punk arrangements that "collapse onto each other." Thematically, Irreal weighs in on "eternalism, roboethics [and] identity."

Down below, you can check out the set's "Another Thought," as well as the tracklisting and a list of upcoming tour dates across the U.S. and Europe.
