It’s been almost three years since Deerhunter released Halcyon Digest, so we’ve been waiting for new album news from them for a while, and here it is: 4AD will release Monomania, the band’s fifth record, on May 7. The band’s made a couple lineup changes in the interim period – Josh McKay has taken over on bass duties, and Frankie Broyles, formerly of Balkans, is now the band’s third (!) guitarist. We’re psyched to hear what the record sounds like with these new members, and with early reports from the Black Lips’ twitter that it might just be Deerhunter’s best record yet – in a typically cryptic statement, Bradford Cox calls the record “nocturnal garage,” which sounds pretty good to us. Check out the tracklist while you wait – nerds like me out there might recognize at least two of the track titles from Atlas Sound and Lotus Plaza live bootlegs.
