Deerhoof Announce U.S. 2011 Fall Tour

The concept of Milk Man came from Tokyo artist Ken Kagami, whose sassy cover art is the perfect match to the sly, at times frightening, but irresistibly catchy music contained inside: the Styx 'n' Stones magic of the title track, an instant pop classic if there ever was one, undeniable proof of Deerhoof's extraordinary songwriting gifts; the organ-driven monster mash of "Giga Dance," whose crazed group interplay sets a new standard for "tension and release"; the otherworldly, borderline operatic, electronica that is "Desaparecere," Deerhoof's Spanish-language debut...and that's just the first three songs! Have we ever heard a band so confidently navigate the extremes of control and chaos, edginess and beauty, profundity and just plain fun?
Deerhoof will be performing Milk Man in its entirety for the first time ever tonight, July 1st, in London at Alexandra Palace. They will joining The Flaming Lips, who will be performing The Soft Bulletin, and Dinosaur Jr., who will be performing Bug.  Milk Man vinyl will be reissued on July 5th by Polyvinyl Records.
