Deerhoof's New Album


Deerhoof has just finished a new album, Offend Maggie, to be released on Deerhoof's longtime home, Kill Rock Stars.

One song from Offend Maggie will soon be available from an interactive website as a downloadable written score. Fans (or foes, or perfect stangers) can then record the song and share their mp3s with others on the website. It is not yet known which song it will be. Everyone can hear Deerhoof's own solution to the song when the album is released October 7.

The October release will be followed immediately by a world tour of all-ages venues and low ticket prices.

In the meantime, Deerhoof will join their hip-hop buddies The Roots this weekend by performing at The Roots Picnic in Philadelphia along with Gnarls Barkley and others before heading off to tour Japan, then a free show in Brooklyn, an appearance at the Halifax Jazz Festival, and a night at the Hollywood Bowl. They continue to perform songs from Offend Maggie throughout these shows. Catch them if you can!

Also don't miss the new Will Ferrel movie Stepbrother which features Deerhoof's Greg Saunier playing with producer John Brion and Nels Cline of Wilco on the soundtrack.

Haven't heard much from these guys. My friend saw them open for Radiohead in Berkeley, and said they were awful.

If I had to choose one word to describe their music it would be: Strange :)

saw these guys play a free show in Madison, it was not for the faint of heart. they're weird, and they're loud. i hadn't really heard them before, and as such, only got into brief moments of the show, but it seemed like the hipsters all around me were enjoying themselves. which is to say, they were chain smoking and frowning at each other with enthusiasm.

Like Trident... four out of five posters do not recommend Deerhoof for anyone's enjoyment.

Weird? Oh yeah, but I like 'em. October 7th? Why so long? Makes me appreciate the Raconteurs a little more for getting the new album out so quickly.
