=Not many people make art for the sake of art anymore. In an age of dwindling attention spans and pop songs based on samples of what came before them, we need bands like La Dispute more than ever—and their third full-length Rooms Of The House is evidence of why.

The band—which features vocalist Jordan Dreyer, guitarists Kevin Whittemore and Chad Morgan-Sterenberg, bassist Adam Vass and drummer Brad Vander Lugt—began work on Rooms Of The House in April of 2013 by renting a cabin in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. “The area where we were was pretty remote so we could focus on playing and not much else,” Vass explains. “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.”

Rooms of the House was recorded and mixed by Will Yip at Studio 4 in Philadelphia, produced by Yip and La Dispute, and mastered at The Lodge by Emily Lazar.

Born with a greater intention than to simply release La Dispute's own records, the band explains that their new label as "an outlet for creative expression, and as a way for both themselves and other artists to work together and give back to their respective communities. The label will operate in multiple forms of media; incorporating written, musical, and visual content, hoping to encourage collaboration between a variety of artists who are looking to impact their communities by supporting structures and organizations which are already making significant positive changes."

To support the release of Rooms of the House, the band will be touring New Zealand this June. Joining La Dispute on all dates will be friends Balance And Composure.

Saturday June 21 – Auckland, Ellen Melville Hall. All Ages.
Sunday June 22 – Wellington, Zeal. Matinee, All Ages.
