Dismemberment Plan are returning this fall with their first new album in a dozen years. The influential Washington D.C. alt-rockers will release Uncanney Valley on October 15th. It’s their first album since Change in 2001.
“When I listen to this record it’s hard for me to believe we’re a bunch of 40-year-olds now,” frontman Travis Morrison said in a press release. “It sounds like the musical heat is stronger than ever.”
Since their last album, the musicians have kept busy with many other endeavors: bassist Eric Axelson has played with Maritime while teaching in public schools; guitarist Jason Caddell has been working as a freelance audio engineer; drummer Joe Easley earned a degree in aerospace engineering and now works for the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center; and Morrison worked for The Washington Post and The Huffington Post. They also reunited for some shows in 2011 around the reissue of their 1999 album Emergency and I.
Here’s the track listing for Uncanney Valley:

White Collar White Trash
