Listen to Disperse’s new album Foreword


Disperse have made their new album Foreword available to stream in full exclusively with Prog.

The Polish and English quartet’s third studio release will launch on February 24 – but Prog readers can hear all 11 tracks now.

The band tell Prog: “We are extremely happy to have Prog magazine featuring our new album Foreword. We sincerely hope that all of you can feel the excitement which we have shared while making this record in our music.”

Guitarist Jakub Zytecki, vocalist and keyboardist Rafal Biernacki, drummer Mike Malyan and bassist Bartosz Wilk are said to have incorporated elements of Pink Floyd, Dream Theater and Cynic into the record, while bringing together genres from metal to jazz to create “a new exciting sound.”

Prog’s review of the album said: “Foreword has no weak spots, no filler, no moments where you might be prompted to say, ‘Their next album might be a belter!’ This is an example of what happens when a good band becomes great, leaving the competition in the dust.”

Foreword can be pre-ordered direct from Season Of Mist’s online store in a variety of bundle packs.

The band will head out on tour across Europe from next month. See full details below.
