Listen to “Macross”…
DISSIMULATE is boxset (edition of 40!) which contains a cassette of demos and unreleased songs from 2013-2017, plus a square clear lathe cut 7” featuring a new song, “Macross,” which will be available on a full-length sometime in 2018. Oh and you get a pin, a patch and what would a boxset be without a booklet?
