New album on the way from Deerhunter

Halcyon Digest is set for release at the end of September

The fourth studio album from Atlanta's Deerhunter is set for release on September 24, through 4AD.

Since signing to the label just two years ago, the band has released a double album (Microcastle and Weird Era Cont.) and a five-track EP (Rainwater Cassette Exchange) as well as numerous unofficial tracks that have appeared on their blog.

Halcyon Digest took just a few weeks to complete in June. It was recorded at Chase Park Transduction in Athens, with Ben H. Allen helping to co-produce. Its final track, 'He Would Have Laughed', was recorded separately by Bradford Cox at Notown Sound in Marietta, and is dedicated to musician Jay Reatard who passed away earlier this year. The band collaborated with the Memphis musician in 2008 to release a split 7" where they covered each other’s songs.
