Disappears add more dates… the prophecies are all coming true! 2012 is real!

Disappears add more dates... the prophecies are all coming true! 2012 is real!

Ha. See? I TOLD YOU Disappears would be touring shitlessly in support of their new album Pre Language on Kranky that is due March 1 soon enough! SHA-BOOZ-BAZ!

Seriously though. I totally said that last Friday, like exactly. I also unloaded a bunch of A-list material about the band and about Steve Shelley and Sonic Youth and Joan of Arc… last Friday was a wild scene, man. Bottom line, the story was all hilarious and evocative and and still applicable here, and I’m not going to blow any more of my creativity on those assholes. Just go click on that link and read it. Then come back here and read this story again (being sure to let its latent brilliance wash over you) and check out the revised list of dates. There’s some European ones and a new batch of North American ones with Lotus Plaza, and even a couple with Lee Ranaldo milling around the stage. “Who the fuck’s that old man?!?” the kids will whisper to each other. It’ll be great.
