After 2009's Other Truths, post rock pioneers and one of the most celebrated bands of the genre, Do Make Say Think return with their first new material in eight years. The album is titled Stubborn Persistent Illusions and it will be out May 19th on Constellation Records.
Roughly a concept album centered around a short Buddhist poem about infinity and recurrence, the new album is best described in the band's own words: "There is a hint of narrative on this album which is both vague and deliberate. The idea comes from an image in a Buddhist poem about working with a wild mind. The idea is that each song is a thought or daydream, independent but at the same time connected to the other thoughts through subconscious feelings. And although the thoughts come and go, the feelings return over and over throughout our lives. The suggestion in the poem is that when your mental chatter carries you away you don’t necessarily need to tie it down or shut it up; you can instead recognize thoughts as thoughts and let them play out. Eventually all concepts must return to perception, where they started. We should probably say again that this narrative is admittedly a bit wooly around the edges - we don’t pretend that every note has a special significance."
