The band, which shares members with Broken Social Scene, teased the album yesterday with a short clip from a song titled Bound. Today they’ve shared Bound And Boundless, a combination of two tracks that make up the album’s centerpiece.
Eight years has been a hefty wait for the follow-up to 2009’s Other Truths, after which the five members of DMST pursued other creative projects. New writing and recording sessions throughout 2014-2016 have led to overdubbing, ‘underdubbing’, gestating and mixing, helmed by band members Ohad Benchetrit, Charles Spearin and Justin Small at Ohad’s studio th’Schvitz. Stubborn Persistent Illusions is a reminder and continuation of the group’s DIY ethos, and the integral role played by their singular self-production acumen and aesthetic.
Stubborn Persistent Illusions is out May 19 on Constellation Records. Pre-order here.
