Chicago’s leading minimalist rockers return with a fifth album.

In January, Disappears will release Irreal, an LP that press material describe as a “Ballardian mix of imperfect melodies, half thoughts and good ol’ dystopian modernity.” Sounds good to us, but for the first taste of what to expect, check out the turbulent video for ‘Another Thought’.

Catch Disappears on the road soon (those dates are below) and revisit our interview with the group from back in 2012. Irreal is due out on January 19 via Kranky.
