Conor Oberst’s Desaparecidos Release Two New Political Songs
The Nebraska-based indie impresario Conor Oberst, known for his work with Bright Eyes, Monsters Of Folk, Commander Venus, Park Ave. and Conor Oberst & the Mystic Valley Band, resurrected his political-leaning punk band Desaparecidos late in 2012 with the release of their first new material since the critically acclaimed 2002 debut Read Music/Speak Spanish.
The always political group followed up their track blasting Arizona celebrity Sheriff Joe Arpaio with the upcoming release of the equally left leaning 7″ “Anonymous/The Left Is Right.” “Anonymous” is a ode to the underground hacker movement by the same name while “The Left Is Right” gives shout out to the Occupy Movement.
The self-released 7″ will be available on 3/12 through the band’s website but you can have a listen for free below.
“The Left Is Right”
Currently, there is no word on the possibility of a full length studio album from Conor and the boys but sporadic tour dates have been announced on desaparecidosband.com.
