LA Dispute have announced that they will release their latest effort Rooms of the House on March 18 via their new label Better Living in partnership with Staple Records.
To celebrate, they’ve shared a free stream of the track ‘Stay Happy There’.
In addition to the digital release, they’re also offering limited-edition vinyl in three colours; blue swirl on clear (1000 copies), blue (1000 copies), and black. The albums will also come from a free download of ‘Stay Happy There’. Pre-order is available here. For digital pre-order, head here. A portion of the proceeds of the album will go to three charities the band supports, 826 National, Girls Rock Camp Alliance and Teenage Cancer America. Fans can choose the charity they donate to when they pre-order the album.
Will Yip produced the album with the band at Studio 4 in Philadelphia. Yip also recorded and mixed the album. To create the book, the band decamped to a isolated cabin on Michigan’s upper peninsula in the hope that leaving their comfort zone would allow them to create their strongest record yet.
“The area where we were was pretty remote so we could focus on playing and not much else,” bassist Adam Vass explained in a statement. “It was just the five of us working on writing every single day for a month and pretty much the entire album came out of those sessions.”
LA Dispute also created a 48-page companion book titled Yesterday’s Home that chronicle the making of the album as well as a special presentation of the album’s lyrics.
The band is also heading out on the road in support of Rooms of the House.
