La Dispute signs to Epitaph

Epitaph Records just announced that La Dispute has joined the label roster. The band is currently working on new music for a yet to be announced album.

Formed over a decade ago in Grand Rapids, Michigan, La Dispute has a firm passion for the concept of music and art as a medium for making new friends. As a result, La Dispute makes (or strives to make) music that is both artistically, technically, and emotionally engaging in hopes of establishing legitimate connections with any and all interested people, while encouraging dialogue between those people and themselves about things in life that truly matter and that truly last. La Dispute also carries a firm passion for the relevance of a live show, both for the bands involved and for the people in attendance, and will go to the grave believing that the environment created when strangers come together despite their differences to celebrate one important thing is invaluable and should not under any circumstances be taken for granted.

As previously announced, La Dispute will release a revamped 10-year anniversary edition of their breakthrough debut full-length Somewhere at the Bottom of the River Between Vega and Altair. Out November 9, 2018 via No Sleep Records, the release boasts re-amped guitars from the original recording files by Grammy-nominated recording vet Will Yip (Code Orange, Circa Survive, The Menzingers), a new mix by Dave Schiffman (Charlie XCX, Trash Talk, Thrice), and was re-mastered by Emily Lazar (Morrissey, Beck, Coldplay). The new version also comes with re-imagined artwork by Corey Purvis.

Stoked to see this band signed to one of my favorite European punk labels.

Until then you can get a taste of what’s to come by streaming the new track “The Beasts” below.

Of the release, the band writes:

“Hi everyone out there reading! We are so glad to make this statement.

We have faced line-up changes, production and post-production issues, health problems, breakups and a lot of negative stuff came through, but a the end the p.m.a. took its pace.

We are not just going to release 32 minutes of music, we are releasing ourselves, all the feelings, life pressure, emotions and illogic thoughts that we all have to handle daily, so we dediced to give each song its own character. 
It’s a 7 tracks record, which means that every song is quite long and we wanted to give the sensation of having a rock trip carried by lyrics, which they are made out with a lot of similarities respect to how we felt like living the past few years, that’s why it’s named Short Tales For Braves. 

Much love and respect. “

Sam,
Tommi,
Mik,
Giova”

30 Miles last released “The Smiles Of Rage & Paranoia” in December 2012 via Ghost Factory Records.
