At two greatly anticipated reunion shows this weekend in Baltimore and Fredricksburg, Va., The Dismemberment Plan played eight new songs—the first fresh material we’ve seen from them in 11 years.
Although there has been no talk previously of another release, frontman Travis Morrison confirmed on the band’s Facebook page that they’re now considering recording.
“We played a bunch of new songs this weekend at our shows,” he wrote. “We have a bunch more coming so we’re going back to the lab to work on brand new ones and tweak these. No plans for recording as of yet, although certainly those conversations are happening now.”
Morrison said during a recent interview with Paste: “We think about [writing new material], but it’s hard to do. I don’t really consider it an active band, it is an active band.” At least for the time being, they’re looking pretty active to us.
The new tracks include titles such as “Daddy Was A Really Good Dancer,” “Waitin’,” “Lookin’,” and “White Collar, White Trash.” Check out fan footage of some of the new tunes below.
