Disq Announce New Album ‘Collector’ out on Saddle Creek, First Single / Video Out Now!

Disq released two songs in 2019 for Saddle Creek’s Document Series, earning early praise from the likes of NPR Music, The FADER, Stereogum, and more. Now the band have officially signed to Saddle Creek, and announce their remarkable debut album Collector. Collector, like the band itself, is defined and tightly-contoured by the ties between its members. Raina Bock (bass/vocals) and Isaac deBroux-Slone (guitar/vocals) have known each other from infancy, growing up and into music together. Now in their early 20s and a five-piece, rounded out by (guitar/keys/vocals), Logan Severson (guitar/vocals), and Brendan Manley (drums), Disq have assembled a razor-sharp, teetering-on-the-edge-of-chaos melange of sounds, experiences, memories, and influences on their debut LP. Produced by Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliot Smith, Kurt Vile), Collector is a set of songs largely pulled from each of the five members’ demo piles over the years. They’re organic representations of each moment in time, gathered together to tell a mixtape-story of growing up in 21st century America with your best friends. Pre-order Collector, out March 6th, HERE. There are 200 Coke Bottle Clear LP’s available exclusively from the Saddle Creek online store.

To celebrate the album announcement, Disq share Collector’s album opener and lead single entitled “Daily Routine.” The hard-hitting track is a massive introduction to the record, encapsulating a fatigued modern nausea, as deBroux-Slone declares in an apathetic, tuneful groan “This is my daily routine/Spend my hours on a computer screen…I’m in prison but I think this place was built by me.” He’s backed by woozy guitars before the whole band crashes in like a panic attack, with tempo darting up and down throughout the song. “’Daily Routine’ is a song about an intense personal struggle,” Isaac deBroux-Slone explains. “In dark times, life can feel like a cycle that I’m trapped in, repeating over and over with no means of escape. It’s easy to fall into a void, thinking that everybody else has it all figured out, while losing sight of the fact that many others feel exactly the same way.” Listen to “Daily Routine” now via The FADER HERE.

Additionally, Disq announce a North American tour in April following SXSW, and will make their way to London next week to debut new material at Five Day Forecast. Having already opened for the likes of Shame, Girlpool, Jay Som and more, Disq’s live show is not to be missed. Tickets go on-sale Friday, January 10th, at 10 AM locally.
