Deerhunter launch countdown to rumoured new album

The band released last record, 'Monomania', in 2013

Indie rock group Deerhunter have launched an online clock counting down to what appears to be the announcement of their next album.

The Atlanta band, consisting of Bradford Cox, Moses Archuleta, Frankie Broyles, Josh McKay and Lockett Pundt, issued their most recent record in 2013 in the form of ‘Monomania’. Frontman Cox recently claimed that its follow-up is coming “really soon”.

Now, Deerhunter’s official website features a countdown in the bottom right-hand corner. It will end at 4am (UK time) on Monday morning (August 17).


Stereogum reports that the album will be titled ‘Fading Frontier’, pointing to an online listing and Instagram post.

Cox recently announced during his set with side-project Atlas Sound at NXNE festival that a new Deerhunter album is coming “really soon” and that it “sounds like INXS”.

The band’s guitarist Lockett Pundt previously hinted via Twitter that fans could hear new material if they saw them live in October, suggesting that tour dates will be unveiled shortly.
