Flying Nun To Release New Deerhoof Album In NZ

Flying Nun have just announced the signing of Deerhoof to the label for their latest album Deerhoof vs Evil out January 31st on all formats including limited edition pink vinyl.

You may recall we posted a few weeks back news of the new album and that the band are leaking a song a week via websites across the globe up until it's official release - well this week it's New Zealand's turn with Einstein Music Journal hosting track "Almost Everyone, Almost Always" - be sure to check it out and head to for tracks already leaked.


Press Release:

Think back to when you were 16...

No one could tell you what to do. You were a force to be reckoned with – filled with the undeniable feeling that you could take on anything and win. Having formed in 1994, Deerhoof has now reached that fateful age and by rites it’s their turn to go out and challenge the world.

The result – the band’s eleventh album, is Deerhoof vs. Evil, and Flying Nun Records are excited to announce they have joined forces with Deerhoof and Polyvinyl Records for the New Zealand album release next year.

The New York Times call Deerhoof “one of the most original rock bands to have come along in the last decade” and, frankly, we couldn’t agree more.

  The same way a rebellious teen turns tough and irrational, before making the album Greg Saunier, Ed Rodriguez, John Dieterich and Satomi Matsuzaki just up and split from San Francisco, the only home they’ve ever known as a band, and left behind all notions of what a “Deerhoof record sounds like.”  

Self-recorded, mixed and mastered in rehearsal spaces and band members’ basements with no engineers or outside input, Deerhoof vs. Evil dresses up Deerhoof’s well-known recklessness in exuberant colors, big-hit sentimentality, and an elastic dancyness unique in their storied catalog.

It is Deerhoof’s ode to their adolescence. A gawky triumph.

Deerhoof vs. Evil is set for release in New Zealand on January 31, 2011 on CD, digital and limited edition pink vinyl.
