By: Spacelab Research Staff Deerhoof has a friend opportunity for you... and no, they don't want you to hook up with them on MySpace. Well, maybe they do, I can't really speak for them, ya know?
Friend Opportunity is the name of their new album. The band that has released a free covers album and extended an opportunity to remix their music to release as a free remix album has looked around and realized they better do a proper release soon because they're going broke with all of the free music!
Friend Opportunity will see the light of the paying day on January 23rd, courtesy of Kill Rock Stars / 5RC. There's a tour afoot (bad Deerhoof metaphor, I know) with bands like the Flaming Lips, Fiery Furnaces, and Fog, not all at the same time mind you, that would just be plain crazy, like sentences that go on forever with commas, never ending, going on and on, babbling (because I do that), and the tour will end with a stop at the CMJ Marathon for a KRS showcase with Erase Errata, Mary Timony, and Excepter. Then it's off to the ATPNightmare Before Christmas on December 8th.
They're even playing at TBA on October 20th. I love that place! Always a good place to see a show.
But wait, there's more. They're recording some stuff at Hyperion Sound in L.A. for a Justin Theroux film called Dedication. The group will be working with composer Ed Shearmur.
