Do Make Say Think announce new album

Do Make Say Think has been widely celebrated as one of the preeminent instrumental rock bands of the 90s-00s. Stubborn Persistent Illusions is the group’s first album in eight years – and a stellar addition to one of the most consistent, inventive, exuberant, satisfying, and critically acclaimed discographies in the ‘post-rock’ canon.

Following Other Truths (2009), the five members of DMST pursued other creative projects, while all continuing to stay firmly rooted in Toronto. An invite from Heartland Festival and Constellation to play the label’s 15th Anniversary shows in Europe in fall 2012 brought DMST back to the stage in very fine form – the band worked up a bevy of gems from their catalogue and absolutely killed live. A rekindling was sparked, leading to new writing and recording sessions throughout 2014-2016. Overdubbing, ‘underdubbing’, gestating and mixing was 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.
