Desaparecidos To Release First New Album In 13 Years

Browse By

Back in 2002, Bright Eyes frontman Conor Oberst put out a punk, post hardcore (ish) album with a side project called Desaparecidos. “Read Music/Speak Spanish” was the only album the band ever released and their touring was sparse. It was one of the few projects that left fans wanting more…for a very long time. That is, until now.
Thirteen years later, a few months after announcing they would play multiple festival spots this year, comes the album announcement and cover art (below).
