    Desaparecidos, the Nebraska-based, five-piece fronted by Conor Oberst have released their first new material in a decade! Two brand new tracks, "MariKKKopa" and "Backsell" are available digitally and on double A-sided 7inch vinyl via the band's website.

    Desaparecidos' debut album Read Music/Speak Spanish - released in 2002 - was universally lauded by critics and saw the band tapped for tours with the likes of Jimmy Eat World and The Promise Ring. The album turned a sharp focus on capitalism, economic injustice and suburban sprawl. The new Desaparecidos songs cover some different ground, with "MariKKKopa" climbing inside the mind of one of vigilante sheriff Joe Arpaio's posse members.

    Desaparecidos, who last toured together in 2002, will kick off their short summer tour with a sold out show in Minneapolis on Aug. 9. The band will also play in Omaha, Seattle, Portland, Chico, San Francisco and at Los Angeles’ FYF Fest.

    Desaparecidos return as the original line up of Conor Oberst (vocals, guitar) Landon Hedges (bass guitar, vocals), Matt Baum (drums), Denver Dalley - (guitar) and Ian McElroy (keyboards).

    Tour Dates:

    August 9 Minneapolis, MN @ 400 Bar # (SOLD OUT)
    August 11 Omaha, NE @ Maha Music Festival
    August 25 Seattle, WA @ Showbox at The Market %

    August 28 Chico, CA @ Senator Theatre ^
    August 29 San Francisco, CA @ Regency Ballroom ^
