Deerhoof Australian/NZ Tour Dates January 2012

Deerhoof have announced some Australian and New Zealand tour dates while they’re out here on the Sugar Mountain 2012 line-up. The band will bring their jaw-dropping, through-the-roof-high-energy live show to Auckland, Wellington, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth.

Deerhoof is a four-piece pop band who some consider to be noise or experimental music, but come on, just listen to it for a minute. Or come to their Australian shows and sing/dance along in person. Extra points for knowing the lyrics and/or the complicated clapping parts. This is Deerhoof’s first, middle and last tour of Australia on their current album Deerhoof Vs. Evil.

One of the most unlikely success stories in contemporary music, Deerhoof made some of the most difficult and unclassifiable noise of the mid-nineties, before unexpectedly rising to international prominence as one of indie rock’s most renowned and influential groups. Deerhoof have influenced the sound of many of their contemporaries, including Xiu Xiu, Dirty Projectors, Ponytail, Of Montreal and St. Vincent. Renowned for their musical innovativeness and the ability to constantly reinvent their sound, Deerhoof have toured the world over and have performed with the likes of Radiohead, Sonic Youth and The Flaming Lips.
