Atmospheric rock band Caspian is thrilled to announce Dust & Disquiet, a brand new studio LP which is set for release on September 25th, 2015 via Triple Crown Records. Dust & Disquiet is the band’s fourth full-length album and the follow up to 2012’s stellar Waking Season. Recorded at Q Division Studios in Somerville, Massachusetts, Caspian once again tapped Matt Bayles (Isis, Cursive, Screaming Females, The Sword) to produce and mix.
In addition, Caspian is also pleased to announce their first North American headlining tour in support of Dust & Disquiet. The upcoming trek kicks off with a show at Rough Trade NYC on September 19th and will wind to the West Coast and back East hitting intimate venues along the way before wrapping up with a hometown show at Boston’s Sinclair on October 23rd. All headlining dates will be supported by Circle Takes the Square and tickets go on-sale beginning July 3rd at 12pm local time.
On Dust & Disquiet, Caspian again refuses to be confined by genre. Listeners will find those familiar intricately textured soundscapes that the band has become known for on tracks like “Sad Heart of Mine,” “Arcs of Command” and the title track, “Dust & Disquiet.” In the center of the album, a track like “Run Dry” will surprise listeners and stands alone in the band’s discography as a stark, acoustic ballad with vocals from guitarist Calvin Joss at the forefront. Elsewhere, Caspian forays into unexpected territory: “Ríoseco” explores the wilder, steel-eyed side of country, and “Aeternum Vale” ventures into the classical realm. “Sad Heart of Mine” is available to stream via Soundcloud BELOW, providing a first glimpse into the new album.
