The Dismemberment Plan Announces Uncanney Album and Tour
The Dismemberment Plan Tour
The Dismemberment Plan is on tour this fall for the first time since their reunion last year. Their jaunt across the US is in support of their newest album Uncanney Valley. It’s hard to believe The Dismemberment Plan has been around since 1993. They split up ten years later in 2003, each member focusing on new pursuits, but reunited in 2011 to tour in support of the rerelease of their album Emergency & I. Perhaps this 2011 tour inspired the group to get back into the studio? Sounds like it.
In speaking with Rolling Stone, The Dismemberment Plan’s frontman, Travis Morrison noted that the group’s creative process is “inspiration-based.” Fans will know this to be true once you listen to this newest album. While the album may not seem to differ from its predecessors, Uncanny Valley is evolutionary in nature. Listeners will be familiar with the lyrical and orchestral offerings, but over the course of the album messages reflect an increasing maturity and wisdom. Morrison calls this process a “gradiation of color” and notes that they really were “yearning for a certain directness” intending to write “songs about real life stuff.” It’s clear there is a self-awareness that reflects the passage of time from The Dismemberment Plan’s debut album ! to Uncanney Valley; that change is intentional.
