Deerhoof Announces New Album Breakup Song, Preview Now

Experimental rock outfit Deerhoof has announced a new album entitled Breakup Song. Yes, I will admit, when I received the press release I totally panicked. It’s just the name of the album, as far as I know. We previously reported about their tour (full dates below), which we speculated at the time, and can confirm now, will feature a performance at Austin’s Fun Fun Fun Fest in November, though the date has not been officially listed in the tour schedule.

The group has a knack for experimenting with sound and instrumentation and has adapted the same technique for previewing album tracks. Right now, you can head over to the Jingletron to preview three snippets of songs. They seem random in nature as different clips crop up each time you insert the virtual token. The page is adorned with a cutesy, animated  dancing guy, grasping the new album alongside bouncing speakers. Definitely take a look!

1. Breakup Songs
