Deerhunter Release Music Video

deerhunterWith the advent of another school year, Atlanta-based indie act Deerhunter has set off on a worldwide tour and will be coming through Boston tonight at the Royale Nightclub. The critically acclaimed band will be supported by New York-based Marnie Stern and the electronica synthpop act Mas Ysa. Doors open at 7:00 P.M. The forty-one show tour, which kicked off on September 12 at the Ontario Phoenix Concert, will conclude at the Meredith Music Festival in Australia on December 13.

Deerhunter released their sixth studio album, Monomania, back in May of this year to widespread critical acclaim. The band also put out a music video three days ago for their song “Back to the Middle.” The black and white video recalls the heyday of Motown a la The Supremes, and in doing so pays homage to a musical style which the band’s self proclaimed genre plays off of (“Notown”). Frontman Bradford Cox’s preoccupation with drag is prominent in the video as it features British actor Durassie Kiangangu dancing in drag.

Since their critically acclaimed studio album Microcastle, Deerhunter has been perceived as one of the foremost avante-garde indie acts playing today. The band has admittedly been plagued by rough touring schedules in the past (due in part to Cox’s medical condition and his continual fight with Marfan Syndrome) however the band insists it’s ready to meet the brunt of touring head on. And with the Boston concert positioned towards the beginning of the tour, fans can assuredly look forward to a stellar performance by this prolific band.
