DISPARAGER Unleash New Lyric Video 'RIP Bill Hicks' On Blank TV; NYC Show Date W/ Sworn Enemy July 12th; New EP Out 'Timeless, Ageless'
Brooklyn, NY's post rock metal band DISPARAGER has unleashed a new lyric video via Blank TV for their track 'RIP Bill Hicks' off their recently released debut EP 'Timeless, Ageless' produced by Jay Maas (Defeater, Bane, H2O, American Nightmare, Polar Bear Club) at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVGAWd57KFs
Vocalist / guitarist Chris Ahkoa comments:
"R.I.P. Bill Hicks is about letting go of something that is wrong for you, even if the act of letting go, the decision to let go, and everything leading up to that decision is hard. Comfort and familiarity are nice, but allowing those feelings to steer your life treads dangerously close to living in fear. Our days are precious and few and we must decide what is worth our time."
In additional news, DISPARAGER will be opening support for hardcore aggressors Sworn Enemy on July 12th in NYC at Blackhorn 51 alongside Thorn Constellatin, Fate Breaks Dawn, Mala Entrana, Apparition, Halo To Havoc and Risers (full show details below).
DISPARAGER will be performing the following show dates in support of their debut EP 'Timeless, Ageless'.
July 12 @ Blackhorn 51 - Elmhurst, NY w/ Sworn Enemy, Thorn Constellation, Fate Breaks Dawn, Mala Entrana, Apparition, Halo To Havoc, Risers
Formed just last year, DISPARAGER has always had the crazy notion that music is art and that art is never a means to an end but an end in itself. As an extension of frontman Chris AhKao regaining his life from personal demons, this debut EP is a testament to that. Bursting with dense rawness and precision while pushing the boundaries of metal with tracks like "At Least I Still Have Bon Iver" – half folk song, half crushing mix of Isis and Slayer - and "Pictures” - a time signature mindfuck the band is proud NOT to call prog rock. The music is meant to showcase a refusal to settle, to compromise, to live any other life than that inspired by unwavering intent, self-expression and integrity.
