Peter Jennings Disciples incorporates their Rust Belt roots and generational ambiguity into the “alternadustrial” sound of their debut EP, Good News. Songs like “The AM” (a dark ambient track) showcase the dichotomy of once-proud cities fallen on hard times and desperately trying to reinvent themselves into greatness again. Other themes explored on Good News vary from the sorrow of suicide to the dedication needed to sustain a relationship.
The Good News EP was released on 2 September 2020 on streaming platforms, digital download, and limited-edition audio cassette formats.
The second song on Good News, “Biography; Epitaph,” has been featured on Eagles Nest Radio.
The Disciples have also released a music video for the final track on the EP, “Don’t Close the Window,” which features lyrics and vocals from J. Whiteaker, lead singer and bassist of The Funeral March of the Marionettes. “Don’t Close the Window” was featured on Subculture Shock.
