Release Date:07/08/2016;Notes:Vinyl LP pressing includes digital download. Oxford, England's TTNG (formerly known as This Town Needs Guns) return with their third full-length, Disappointment Island. Though this is their first record since becoming a trio, you'd never guess it from their sound, which has become more refined and realized than ever before. With their latest album, TTNG have managed to subtly embrace more conventional pop ideals without sacrificing the intensity and musicianship they're admired for. Turning their attention to the studio in December 2015, TTNG decamped to the American Midwest, ground zero for the kind of articulated alternative rock they themselves have been mastering for a decade. Recorded live to tape over 10 days at Chicago's legendary Electrical Audio studios by Greg Norman (McLusky, Russian Circles, Pelican) and mastered by Shellac's Bob Weston, Disappointment Island proves that the band's success comes from their ability to write songs whose appeal endures well after the sheer awe of their technical prowess subsides. TTNG have existed in several incarnations and have found success in each, but their current evolution pushes what has always made the band great into new and exciting territories. Disappointment Island is TTNG's most poignant, deliberate accomplishment, successfully arriving at a place that is simultaneously authentic and reverential.;Track List:1. Coconut Crab;2.
