Fuck, man, good things keep happening today. Case in point: The Dismemberment Plan, the great twitchy D.C. post-punk quartet who happen to be one of my favorite bands of all time, are going to release a new album. The band broke up in 2003, and when they got back together in 2011 for a reunion tour, nobody was really expecting any further music from them. But at a Baltimore show last year, the band debuted a few new songs, and they were fucking awesome. And now those songs will find a home on the new LP Uncanney Valley, the band’s first since Change, way the hell back in 2001. The D-Plan recorded the new album in Baltimore with the excellent post-hardcore producer J. Robbins. We’ll all get to hear it this fall. Check the tracklist below.
01 “No One’s Saying Nothing”
04 “White Collar White Trash”
05 “Living In Song”
07 “Daddy Was A Real Good Dancer”
08 “Mexico City Christmas”
09 “Go and Get It”
10 “Let’s Just Go To The Dogs Tonight”
Uncanney Valley is out 10/15 on Partisan.
