Cheaters & Thieves (2009)
Tangled Woods Sessions (2008)
The Guest, EP (2007)



Dignan announce the release of their highly anticipated debut LP ‘Cheaters & Thieves’ and a massive US tour in support. The McAllen, TX group set out on a vast six month tour in late 2007/08 with their impressive self-released EP “The Guest’ in hand and went from virutal unknowns, who early on sat with their guitars in empty church vestibules writing their songs, to a mega touring band selling out the initial pressing of the EP and gaining a huge following along the way. While taking their Cursive-meets-Arcade Fire sound across the US, Dignan shared the stage with the likes of Plain White T's, Ra Ra Riot and Color Revolt as well as hitting festivals like South by Southwest and Cornerstone where they played to thousands, furthering building their fanbase and proving their are a band to watch.

Earlier this year, Dignan took some time off from touring and poured their hearts into a DIY effort of great proportion in creating ‘Cheaters & Thieves’. Lead singer/guitarist Andy notes that in the process, “Each song just sort of came together on their own. All of the themes in each of these songs are things that really tug at my heart; infidelity, the search for life’s answers, the struggle between right and wrong. We added a lot of group vocals, and a lot of layering of different vocals. I recorded guitars with multi mic setups which I'd never done." The record was mixed at Premium Recordings in Austin where they also recently returned to play the Pachanga Festival with a memorable performance which left one reviewer heralding Dignan saying, “Mark our words, these youngsters are going places”. And the result has already gained the attention of Paste Magazine where the album’s first single “Two Steps”, through popular vote, earned a place on the Paste/Heineken CD Sampler.

‘Cheaters & Thieves’ will be available June 26 exclusively through http://merchline.com/dignan. Pre-orders will receive a limited edition poster. A tremendous three month tour in support kicks off with a hometown record release show at Cine El Rey on the 26th and includes summer festival appearances at Cornerstone and D Fest.
