Deerhunter announce fourth album

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Wednesday July 14th , 2010

Deerhunter have announced their fourth LP, Halcyon Digest, through an interactive xerox art project and the launch of a website, halcyondigest.com.

The album will be released by 4AD on September 27th.

Ubiquitous frontman Bradford Cox describes "...always being fascinated with the ephemera of 70's – 80's artrock in record stores like Wuxtry in Athens where I hung out as a kid or Wax 'N Facts in Atlanta. You'd see a photocopied faded B-52's flyer next to a poster for Lou Reed or XTC. It was like an artpunk scrapbook on those walls. It made my head spin. Who are these people? Who are the fucking Residents with these weird-ass eyeball faces?"

Cox has designed a flyer by hand in the cut-and-paste style of his new-wave heroes. Fans are asked to print the flyer out, photocopy it, and paste it around town – in their favorite independent record store, co-op, bedroom, library, etc... They are asked to take photos of the flyers where they hang them and send them to flyers@halcyondigest.com, where they will be posted. Fans are asked to include the city where the photo was taken in the email. People participating are asked to respect local laws regarding the posting of flyers, and to ask permission before posting them on private property.

Those who send in images will be the first to hear (via an e-mailed link) Halcyon Digest's first single in the next few weeks. They will also receive an exclusive non-album track that will not be available anywhere else.
