DESAPARECIDOS RETURN FOR AUGUST DATES
Desaparecidos, the Nebraska-based 5-piece fronted by Conor Oberst, have reunited. The band, who haven't toured together since 2002, recently played a surprise show in their hometown of Omaha where they unveiled two brand new songs: "Left is Right" and "Backsell". In addition to Desaparecidos previously announced performance at Omaha's MAHA Music Festival, the band have announced shows in Minneapolis, Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco.
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). The band formed in 2001, released one album (2002's critically lauded Read Music/Speak Spanish), and ceased playing together shortly thereafter.
Prior to the long awaited and much rumored summer dates, Oberst will play several solo shows throughout the northeast.
