The countdown on La Dispute‘s website hit zero today, and as many speculated, there was an album announcement waiting at the end. The post-hardcore quintet will release their third full-length, Rooms of the House, on March 18, 2014. The album was written in an isolated cabin in the upper peninsula of their native Michigan and recorded in Philadelphia, PA with producer Will Yip, who has worked on a number of major releases this year, including the latest from Balance & Composure and Polar Bear Club.
Rooms of the House marks La Dispute’s departure from longtime label No Sleep Records. The new album will be released on Staple Records and the band’s own label, Better Living, which will function not only as a record label, but as an outlet for creative expression in general and a way for artists to give back to their communities. Accordingly, a portion of the proceeds from the sales of Rooms of the House will go towards youth arts programs.
As if a new album wasn’t enough, La Dispute also announced a North American tour with Pianos Become the Teeth and Mansions. The tour runs through March and April, and an international leg (with different openers) will be announced soon.
Check out the full list of tour dates and the artwork for Rooms of the House after the break.
