Harmony and Dissidence is the second full-length album by Jackson United. It was released in 2008 through Magnificent Records, Acetate Records and Deck Cheese Records.


The album was recorded during 2007 at Foo Fighters' personal Studio, 606 West in Northridge, CA, United States. All songs were written by Chris Shiflett, guitarist for Foo Fighters. It features bandmates Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins sharing drumming duties, as Jackson United did not have a regular drummer at the time of recording. Also featured on the album are Foo Fighters touring members Rami Jaffee and Drew Hester on keyboards and percussion respectively. Chad Blinman mixed the album at his personal studio, The Eye Socket.

The album was first released as a download album via iTunes on April 8, 2008, and CD versions followed later in Australia, Japan, United Kingdom (November 3) and United States (September 2).
