For this month’s ChicagoVerseUniteD cover story, every day in January will preview a different local artist’s plans for 2011. Today: Disappears!


While most bands are, at best, in the early stages of planning out their year, CVU 2011 Act To Watch Disappears already have a 2011 full length to their name. Titled Guider, the psych-laced post-punk effort hasn’t even been out a full week, yet the band is already making progress on new material for a follow up effort. Speaking with CVU, Disappears’ Brian Case reveals that the band will be spending much of 2011 touring nationally and overseas. Beyond that, he reveals Disappears are “getting material together for a new album.”

“We’ve tracked five new songs at Echo Canyon and are hoping to get back in as soon as we get a few more things finished,” the frontman goes on to explain, adding that the band is optimistically aiming for further studio time “hopefully (in) early summer.”

Speaking of the current recordings, Case reveals the new material “has a lot more space,” and is “not quite as rhythmically dense.”

“It’s a bit darker as well; we’re very excited about it all,” he adds.

To hear material from Guider, head out to the Empty Bottle on February 4th for Disappears’ record release event. Score a free ticket for that show with the purchase of Guider from Saki, at 3716 W. fullerton in Chicago. And check out Disppear’s ”Superstition”video below, via Stereogum’s Vimeo channel.
