Deerhunter announce new LP & 2019 tour (listen to “Death in Midsummer”)
We've known it was coming and now Deerhunter have finally announced their new album, which is titled Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared? and will be out January 18 via 4AD (and not this year as Bradford Cox told the crowd at House of Vans back in August). The record was primarily made with Cate Le Bon in Marfa, TX with additional production by Ben H. Allen III, and Ben Etter. The first single is the harpsichord-led opening track "Death in Midsummer," on which you can definitely feel Cate's presence. Watch the video, where the Deerhunter and the antelope play, below. You can also check out the LP's artwork and tracklist (and some notes about the songs) below.
Deerhunter will tour North America in 2019, including dates with Mary Lattimore, and L'Rain. They'll all play NYC's Brooklyn Steel on February 27 and tickets go on sale Friday, November 2 at 10 AM with an AmEx presale starting Thursday (11/1) at 10 AM. All dates are listed below.
