Disciplines Album Finally Getting U.S. Release

Awesome news over on Billboard today:

Smoking Kills, the debut album from The Disciplines, is finally coming out in the U.S. via Second Motion Records on April 28th. The album came out in Scandanavia last year, and you can hear several songs over at the band's MySpace page.

Who are the Disciplines, you ask? The Disciplines are a former Norwegian band known as Briskeby fronted by none other than Ken Stringfellow of The Posies.

The band plans to tour in North and South America this year, as well as Europe.

And what about a new Posies album?
"I am waiting for songs to emerge that are appropriate for the Posies, at which point we will work on another Posie opus," he says. "That's the intention."
Awesome.

Edited to add: Be sure to listen to "There's a Law" if you go to the MySpace page.

Sadly, it's only OK, but nice to see it getting a US release. More important, think they could bother to play the US again sometime this decade? Last time was, I think, 2005, not counting a couple of acoustic gigs in Seattle, and last year alone the Posies played something like 30 shows in Europe.
