Album Notes
Limited edition clear vinyl reissue of 2012's We Were Always Loyal to Lost Causes. This vinyl reissue feature two previously unreleased tracks "We Disappear" and "Wild Weather".

The Dandelion War is an American Post-Rock band from Oakland, California. They combine elements of post-rock, shoegaze, dreampop and ambient to outstanding effect. The band’s ethereal and haunting sound relies on the stark contrasts between quiet minimalism and colossal crescendos. AbsolutePunk described the band as “sounding like what would happen if someone melted Explosions In The Sky, Radiohead and The Antlers’ Hospice together.” They have also been compared to Sigur Ros and My Morning Jacket.

The band reached critical acclaim with the release of We Were Always Loyal to Lost Causes in 2012. The album was listed as one of the year’s top release by The Alternative Tone (#13), Team Reasonable (#10), and PopBlerd (#10). Their debut album Geometries and Orchids was released independently in 2010. A follow-up, We Were Always Loyal to Lost Causes, was released by Deep Elm in 2012. Deep Elm also re-released Geometries and Orchids in 2012. The band’s third album, Opposite Shores, was released on November 18, 2014.
