Cinematic instrumental quartet DUMBSAINT have announced the release of Part III: Celeste, the first installment in a new audio/visual series, Disappearance In A Minor Role, which will be released online in 3 parts over the coming six months.
The experimental film/soundtrack project was conceived and trialled throughout 2013, during tours with This Will Destroy You (USA), Twelve Foot Ninja and Helm. It will be the first new material from the band since last September’s short film and EP The Auteur, which received repeated airplay across FBi, Triple J’s The Racket, 2SER and Brisbane’s 4zzz.
Part III: Celeste sees the band continue to explore powerful interactions between sound and image. Deliberately released out of chronological order, the haunting first segment of the 25-minute long Disappearance In A Minor Role is a mystery that will only be solved one all 3 pieces have been revealed. In addition to the film, Part III: Celeste includes four new extended tracks and a 6-minute behind-the-scenes video featurette.

DUMBSAINT will be performing as main support for Russian Circles (USA) at Manning Bar in Sydney on May 3rd.
Something That You Feel Will Find Its Own Form, The Auteur and Part III: Celeste are available now through Bird’s Robe Records.
