After taking a few months to regroup after the release of, and tour(s) around their last full length, Des Ark are back at it again. The band will be headed out on the road, first with Avail’s Tim Barry, followed by a jaunt with The Appleseed Cast throughout much of the midwest. This kicks off what promises to be a busy year for the band as they get ready to record a follow up to Don’t Rock The Boat, Sink The Fucker.
In the meantime, you can check out stripped down sessions with Aimée Argote on WXDU. Volume 1 and Volume 2 have just been released on Bandcamp and Lovitt will be reissuing WXDU Vol. 3 featuring Johnny Ward of Pygmy Lush in the coming weeks.
Tour dates below. Get pumped.
“Anyone expecting agitprop mallpunk or ironic cowpunk covers may be surprised by the shimmery pop sound of (Des Ark), which creates a dynamic, often dense sound out of a minimum of instruments.” – Pitchfork (http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/15418-dont-rock-the-boat-sink-the-fucker/)
