Desaparecidos Sign Deal With Epitaph, Announce New Album
Conor Oberst's rock outfit, Desaparecidos, just inked a deal with Epitaph Records and will deliver an untitled new album later this year. It appears to be full speed ahead for the once long dormant band.
"We are honored to officially be on [Epitaph Records]. So many great things to come in 2015," the band posted on their Facebook page today. The Desaparecidos originally formed in 2001, releasing their debut album, 'Read Music/Speak Spanish,' in 2002. That was, until now, pretty much their whole story, as Oberst's other main project, Bright Eyes, took flight and occupied his every waking hour (along with his solo career).
In 2010, Oberst called up his old bandmates about getting things rolling again. Since reuniting, the band has issued a few singles and performed the occasional live show. The original lineup of Oberst (guitar/vocals), Denver Dalley (guitar), Matt Baum (drums), Landon Hedges (bass), and Ian McElroy (keyboard) remains.
In addition, they have announced a small run of live dates, including a high profile appearance at Coachella.
