La Dispute / Koji "Never Come Undone (Split)"
"Never Come Undone," the forthcoming split 12" release from Harrisburg, PA singer-songwriter Andrew Koji Shiraki and Grand Rapids, MI outfit La Dispute is, above all things, an attempt to transcend musical differences; to show that, where a middle ground exists ethically and emotionally, differences in genre and style are rendered irrelevant, and the greater truth is made apparent. Featuring two songs from Koji (one original and one cover) and two songs from La Dispute (one original and one re-imagining of a track from 2008's "Somewhere..."), the record reflects heavily on the two artists' individual experiences with loss and their reaction to it. Recorded separately at Drasik Studios in Chicago, IL (Koji) and at Stadium Red in Harlem, NY (La Dispute), "Never Come Undone" shows Koji and La Dispute at the peak of their friendship, exploring new personal ground both musically and lyrically and will be released on a one-sided 12" with an etched B-side by No Sleep Records. Now available again on colored vinyl. 12"ep includes digital download.
