Deerhoof Shares New Song, Tour Dates
American punk band Deerhoof is turning a bit more pop. The band’s upcoming studio album, La Isla Bonita, defies their original genre, with single “Paradise Girls” edging toward 90s pop. And you know what? We dig it. The album is due out November 4 via Polyvinyl, and Deerhoof is venturing out on a North American tour to support it. They’ll kick things off in Brooklyn, NY at Baby’s All Right on November 4 (there will be shows on November 5 and 6 there, too), before moving onto Falls Church, VA; Charlottesville, VA; Philadelphia, PA; Chicago, IL; Toronto, ON; Los Angeles, CA; San Francisco, CA; Seattle, WA; and Vancouver, BC, among others. Support on the tour comes from a multitude of artists. Depending on your date, they could be Tim Banes, Assembly, Zannie Owens with Mount Yucca, White Reaper, Trans Am, Xenia Rubinos, Cibo Matto, Priests, Lightning Bolt, Go Dark, Crystal Skulls, and Busdriver. For more information, check out Deerhoof’s website.
Formed in 1994, Deerhoof came out of the Bay Area punk scene as a real DIY band—they’ve always been focused on managing their own career, self-producing their albums and rocking out their live shows. Today, the band is comprised of John Dieterich, Ed Rodriguez, Greg Saunier, and Satomi Matsuzaki.
