DISPARAGER Announce New NYC Date July 27th & Opening For Sworn Enemy July 12th


Post rock metal band DISPARAGER whom unleashed their new lyric video ‘RIP Bill Hicks’ off their recently released debut EP ‘Timeless, Ageless’ produced by Jay Maas (Defeater, Bane, H2O, American Nightmare, Polar Bear Club) are proud to announce they will be performing another local date in Brooklyn, NY on July 27th at The Acheron following their opening slot for Sworn Enemy this weekend on July 12th at Blackthorn 51. (show details below)


Lyric Video – RIP Bill Hicks:




Vocalist / guitarist Chris Ahkoa comments:

“R.I.P. Bill Hicks is about letting go of something that is wrong for you, even if the act of letting go, the decision to let go, and everything leading up to that decision is hard.  Comfort and familiarity are nice, but allowing those feelings to steer your life treads dangerously close to living in fear.  Our days are precious and few and we must decide what is worth our time.”


Show Dates:

July 12 @ Blackthorn 51 – Elmhurst, NY w/ Sworn Enemy, Thorn Constellation, Fate Breaks Dawn, Mala Entrana, Apparition, Halo To Havoc, Risers

July 27 @ The Acheron – Brooklyn, NY w/ Blackest,  Warm, Dead Empires


Formed just last year, DISPARAGER has always had the crazy notion that music is art and that art is never a means to an end but an end in itself. As an extension of frontman Chris AhKao regaining his life from personal demons, this debut EP is a testament to that. Bursting with dense rawness and precision while pushing the boundaries of metal with tracks like “At Least I Still Have Bon Iver” – half folk song, half crushing mix of Isis and Slayer – and “Pictures” – a time signature mindfuck the band is proud NOT to call prog rock. The music is meant to showcase a refusal to settle, to compromise, to live any other life than that inspired by unwavering intent, self-expression and integrity.
