"We've got a gift we want to give to you"

We just finished mixing songs that we recently recorded with Steve Brodsky (Pet Genius, Cave In) at Club Awesome in Allston, MA. It was everything a recording session should be: laid back, understated and quick, and all the songs were recorded live in just one or two takes. It was wonderfully mastered by Josh Regula. Now that we have the finished product in our hands we are giving it over to you. Free. No obligation. It seemed a waste to just sit on the recording, so we are hosting the 4-song, 21 minute recording HERE as a free downloadable zip file. We encourage you to crank it up and enjoy. If you like it, please share it with your friends.

These demos mark 2 notable firsts for us. It's the first recording with our new drummer, Matt Spearin, and it also marks the end of Disappearer as a strictly instrumental band. Three of the four songs recorded feature vocals. We'll let you decide whether you like them or not, but regardless, they're here to stay. For fans of old, however, there is a heavy as hell instrumental. We're stoked on these things and are eager to share them with you. We have a lot more in store for you and hopefully before long you'll get to hear it.

For those who prefer hard copies over digital downloads, fear not; we will have a limited supply of cd's with us this March, during our tour with PLOWS. The cd will feature hand-constructed packaging and artwork... we hope to make it something quite special. You may download the recording HERE. (right click/"save as" or ctrl/click)

Thank you friends,
