Unlike their last tour, frontman Bradford Cox will not be opening with his solo project Atlas Sound. And unlike the last tour, the four-piece band’s sound will be filled out by Rhasaan Manning on percussions and Javier Morales on keyboards and saxophone.
The psychedelic, shoe-gazing garage-rockers are following a jam-packed schedule tour this month after playing shows in Japan. They’re performing most days from the 5th to the 25th. Deerhunter also just announced that they will tour Kings of Leon this January (no, we don’t know why either).

Their Thalia show in Chicago last year sold out so fast that the band and the venue decided to perform twice that day: once during the evening, and another during the night.
