Deerhoof announce magical new album

By | Published on Thursday 21 April 2016


Deerhoof released a new song called ‘Debut’ earlier this week. Now they’ve announced a whole album, ‘The Magic’, out on 24 Jun, and another song, ‘Plastic Thrills’.

Pondering the title and content of the album, drummer Greg Saunier says: “Maybe it came from the music we liked when we were kids, when music was like magic – before we knew about the industry and before there were rules – sometimes hair metal is the right choice. We all showed up in the mood to sing”.

On the continuing 22 year history of the band, singer and bassist Satomi Matsuzaki adds: “I joined this band a week after I arrived in San Francisco from Japan. I hopped on a Muni bus to have a first meeting with Deerhoof. I got off at a wrong stop. I was lost and confused. They found me on a dark street corner after I called for help from a pay phone. Since then my adventure expanded. Deerhoof is a vehicle with four powered wheels that takes me through forest, desert and buildings. My life is adventure!”
