Few names invoke as much majesty in the world of melodic death metal than Swedish …
Ten years since the band’s debut album, post-hardcore outfit La Dispute are set to drop their fourth record early next year.
The first album since 2014’s Rooms of the House, La Dispute will release their latest work Panorama through Epitaph Records on 22nd March 2019.
With a combination of jazz, rock, slowcore and hardcore, among other influences, the new album will span ten tracks, each an ambitious narrative that tells a story through a personal lens.
Alongside the announcement of the new album, the first two singles from the band’s upcoming release have been dropped.
With a music video of muted colours and an artistic cartoon-esque style, ROSE QUARTZ/FULTON STREET I are online for fans to check out now.
Speaking to NPR of the new tracks, vocalist Jordan Dreyer said ‘ROSE QUARTZ is a bright white light, then the low hum of tires on a country highway; FULTON STREET I is two heads in the car turning quietly at passing landmarks, plywood monuments with plastic flowers and the stories that populate the stretch of road between two places. Together, they’re the first two tracks on a record born from long drives like that, between a new and an old home, that takes a wide-angled shot of a city and just outside of it. How events there linger on in the memory of all those involved, carrying the characters off in thoughts of grief and healing to other planes and other histories.’
