Deerhoof New Album, Tour Dates

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!
