Released September 25, 2015
2LP / Digital
first press: 300 White Black Half & Half
Dust and Disquiet is the band’s fourth full-length album and the follow up to 2012’s stellar Waking Season. Recorded at Q Division Studios in Somerville, Massachusetts, Caspian once again tapped Matt Bayles (Isis, Cursive, Screaming Females, The Sword) to produce and mix.
On Dust and Disquiet, Caspian again refuses to be confined by genre. Listeners will find those familiar intricately textured soundscapes that the band has become known for on tracks like “Sad Heart of Mine,” “Arcs of Command” and the title track, “Dust & Disquiet.” In the center of the album, a track like “Run Dry” will surprise listeners and stands alone in the band’s discography as a stark, acoustic ballad with vocals from guitarist Calvin Joss at the forefront. Elsewhere, Caspian forays into unexpected territory: “Ríoseco” explores the wilder, steel-eyed side of country, and “Aeternum Vale” ventures into the classical realm. “Sad Heart of Mine” is available to stream above now, providing a first glimpse into the new album.
The 2LP is pressed on coloured virgin vinyl and comes in a heavyweight gatefold jacket with special metallic ink, inside black flood printing, printed inner sleeves and download code for a digital copy of the album.
