Stream La Dispute's new album "Wildlife" here!

"...muted punk-rock anthems that can be as lush as they are explosive... La Dispute has all the hooks of a pop-punk band raised on At the Drive-In, as well as a surprising sense of restrained propulsion for a hardcore band. But La Dispute's most distinctive weapon is vocalist Jordan Dreyer, who alternates an almost conversational, raspy scream with spoken word." - NPR

In support of their upcoming new album "Wildlife," out October 4th on No Sleep Records, La Dispute have premiered an early stream of their critically acclaimed forthcoming release at both their website and Facebook page.

The follow-up to their 2008 LP "Somewhere at the Bottom of the River Between Vega and Altair," "Wildlife is a nearly 60-minute musical examination of the twentysomething search for purpose; an exploration of the struggles that confront, damage, and redefine us inevitably in life through 14 tracks of new material. Set up as a collection of unpublished "short stories" complete with the author's notes and sectioned thematically by four monologues, "Wildlife" discusses the difficulties inherent in growing up by interweaving the author's own ambiguous loss and struggle for meaning alongside the stories it compelled him to document.

Accordingly, each song musically captures both the moods and tones of those stories as well as the more subtle personal narrative throughout the entire record through a heavy reliance on dynamics and alternative instrumentation allowing for a diversity that shows nearly every spot on the spectrum while never sounding out of place, forced, or unfamiliar. Recorded at both Drasik Studios in Chicago and StadiumRed in New York with Andrew Everding and Joe Pedulla using no artificial reverb, La Dispute's sophomore full length organically captures the sound of five friends committed to pushing their own creative boundaries while still retaining a desire to create honest and emotional music. "Wildlife" arrives October 4 via No Sleep Records.
