Upcoming events at Kilby Court
After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our upcoming tour dates in support of our debut album, Collector. Due to ongoing public health concerns, and an uncertain timeline, it didn’t feel right to continue to promote the shows or ask our fans to put themselves into an uncomfortable (or unsafe) situation.
We want to thank you all for the outpouring of love following last week’s release. We were so looking forward to sharing these songs with you on the road, and that makes this announcement even more difficult to bear.
As for now the Minneapolis show, our album release show in Madison, WI, and our upcoming May UK/EU tour are all still on. We’re continuing to monitor the situation closely with our team and remain cautiously optimistic. The safety of our fans is paramount.
Refunds for postponed dates will be available at point of purchase.
Extra love to Pom Pom Squad and Girl Friday who were planning to join us. We love both bands and hope you will check them out. If you can spare it in these uncertain times, we’d humbly ask you continue to support us, Pom Pom Squad, and Girl Friday by streaming music, buying merch & records, telling your friends, and coming out to the next show.
We’ll see you soon,
Isaac, Raina, Shannon, Logan, and Brendan

Disq have assembled a razor-sharp, teetering-on-the-edge-of-chaos melange of sounds, experiences, memories, and influences. Due out March 6 on Saddle Creek, Collector ought to be taken literally -- it is a place to explore and catalogue the Madison, Wisconsin band’s relationships to themselves, their pasts, and the world beyond the American Midwest as they careen from their teens into their 20s. This turbulence is back-dropped by gnarled power pop, anxious post-punk, warm psych-folk, and hectic, formless, tongue-in-cheek indie rock.
Collector, like the band itself, is defined and tightly-contoured by the ties between the five members. Raina Bock (bass/vocals) and Isaac deBroux-Slone (guitar/vocals) have known each other from infancy, growing up and into music together. Through gigging around Madison, they met and befriended Shannon Connor (guitar/keys), Logan Severson (guitar/backing vocals), and Brendan Manley (drums) -- three equally dedicated and adventurous musicians committed to coaxing genre boundaries.
Produced by Rob Schnapf, Collector is a set of songs largely pulled from each of the five members’ demo piles over the years. They’re organic representations of each moment in time, gathered together to tell a mixtape-story of growing up in 21st century America. The songs are marked by urgency, introspection, tongue-in-cheek nihilism, and a shrewd understanding of pop and rock structures and their corollaries -- as well as a keen desire to dialogue with and upset them.
