Be ready for the rock," mock-warns Seven Mary Three. In fact, from the opening salvo of the balls-out "Settle Up" to the aggro "Bark No Bite" to the emotive first single, "Without You Feels," Dis/Location is indeed "guitar-ded," full of "1970s dirge-y, dirty type of riffs," observes singer Jason Ross. "We didn't reinvent the wheel, but we reclaimed the reason we started the band by making this record," Ross says. "It's brash. The record was made quickly, and we were forced to make quick decisions, so it became the document of a definitive time.
That time? January 2004. "Each day we worked on this album it got better, more fun," recalls Ross of the disc that was tracked and partially written--in a mere 20 days. Dis/Location's 11 tunes represent the most immediate, from-the-gut collection in a stellar career.
