Hip-hop collective, L.A. Symphony will release the highly-anticipated Disappear Here on October 4th on Gotee Records/EMI CMG Distribution.

The 15-song project, produced at large by L.A. Symphony, features guest appearances from the legendary Madlib (Stone’s Throw), Evidence (Dialated Peoples), Great Jasn (J-beits), Sup the Chemist, and DJ Rhetmattic. The overall theme of the album is perseverance.

"I think this is our best album to date,“ says Cookbook. “Not only do we explore more topics than ever before, but our sound and style has grown as well. I love how the album is broad in the sense that it has the fun stuff, the party stuff, but some deep stuff as well. This time around we took 4 months and shut everything else off, and made this album together. The result is a good blend of the 5 of us, all really contributing on every level. We've been in this for a while, and seen the ups and downs, and we're still here to say never give up on your God-given dreams."

L.A. Symphony’s Disappear Here marks the group’s second release on Gotee Records. Their discography includes 2003’s The End Is Now (Gotee/Basement), as well as the independently- released The Baloney EP in 2001, and Composition #1 (Eartube Empire) in 1999. Call It What You Want, was completed and set to release on the now-defunct Squint label in 2000, but was never officially released to retail, although a leaked version made the rounds on the Internet.

L.A. Symphony is comprised of MCs/Producers FLYNN, Sharlok Poems, Joey the Jerk, UNO Mas, and Cookbook. Formed in 1997 during a time when West Coast hip-hop was better known for gangster rap and its graphic portrayals of sex and violence, the crew rose through the ranks of City of Angels' storied underground hip-hop scene with a distinctively organic vibe that was styled to "connect with the common man." The conglomerate, who delivers thought-provoking lyrics with both passion and humor, has shared the stage with names like Jurassic 5 and Black Eyed Peas. L.A. Symphony has played major events like the NBA/Yahoo Rhythm and Rims Tour, the Van’s Warped Tour (Los Angeles show), and The Night Hip-Hop Stole Christmas.
