The Dismemberment Plan

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”
02 “Waiting”
03 “Invisible”
04 “White Collar White Trash”
05 “Living In Song”
06 “Lookin’”
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.

  1. Such an underappreciated band. Emergency & I is seriously one of the best albums I have ever heard, both musically and lyrically. Cannot wait for this album.

  2. This is basically all I ever wanted out of 2013. Also, Emergency & I is amazing and always has been, but Change, man, Change has just grown and grown. I love that album so much.

  3. This is the second best news I’ve heard all day!

  4. Definitely a band I was late to the party with, but I can’t wait to hear this.

  5. all of my yes. please don’t disappoint!

  6. once again, thank you based 2013

    Glad to see they finally found their membership cards to the human race.

  8. Shitballs yeah!!! Hey, if the D-Plan can get back together for another album, is there hope for Ellen and Ben? These guys are one of the most hopeful bands I know, just hope I’m invited.
