Deerhunter Preps New Album, Fliers Your Town
Following multiple critically acclaimed albums, Atlanta's Deerhunter finished up the work on its fourth full-length, entitled Halcyon Digest. The new record is available September 28 from 4AD, with a brand-new website sharing bits from the album up now. Preceding the release date as well, Deerhunter is holding a competition of sorts. The album's artwork is inspired in large part by the black-and-white, cut-and-paste, DIY fliers of yore, and in that spirit, the band has crafted a zine cover/poster of its own telling of Halcyon's impending release. The band asks that fans download the image (which is available here), print it out, photocopy it, and plaster it about town. But that would just be free promotion, so they devised a contest; take photos of your posted fliers, email the pictures to email@example.com, along with the town from which they came, and you'll be treated to an early listen of Deerhunter's new single and a fresh, non-album track not available anywhere else.
