Indie rock stalwarts Deerhunter have created a “science fiction album about the present,” and I am here for it.
Due out Jan. 18 on 4AD, “Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared?” will be the band’s eighth album and first since 2015’s “Fading Frontier.”
The first single, “Death in Midsummer,” was released today, and its waltzing pace, coupled with the band’s new press photo in which all the members are donning cowboy hats, suggests a sort of ethereal, rock-tinged alt-country approach to Deerhunter’s ever-evolving sound.
But here’s the most important thing for you, Baltimore: The band is playing a March 3 show at Ottobar; it’s worth noting the date is sandwiched between two shows at larger venues, the 9:30 Club in Washington D.C. and Mr. Smalls Theatre outside Pittsburgh.
Tickets go on sale Nov. 2 at 10 a.m. and cost $25.
