Deeper announce their full-length Sub Pop debut Careful!
Share lead single “Build a Bridge” (+ official video)
New album out September 8th
Careful! World Tour
North American Dates Sep. 21-Oct. 22nd
UK & EU Dates Oct. 31 – Nov. 14th
On Friday, September 8, Deeper will release Careful!, its new full-length album worldwide on CD/LP/CS/DSPs through Sub Pop. Careful! was recorded at Palisade Studios in Chicago with help from producer/engineer Dave Vettraino (Makaya McCraven, Lala Lala), and this thirteen-track collection of new songs finds the band reshaping facades, splashing color, and sonically testing their limits.
Following the previously released single “Sub” comes “Build a Bridge.” Using a prickly guitar line to launch into big, smeary art-pop, its emotional palette is clear, well-defined, and easy to latch onto.
Deeper say about the single and video: “‘Build a Bridge’ was the first song written remotely in a new format that would come to define the writing process of Careful!. In the early days of the band, we would throw shit at the wall in our practice space and see what stuck. Being forced to stay in our apartments during lockdown allowed us to apply more intention to a song and really dissect it piece by piece.
“We worked with Austin Vesely (Chance the Rapper, Whitney) on the video in which the band is hooked up to a machine, taking turns controlling alternate versions of ourselves in a different dimension. The sequence keeps repeating with each of us failing, but each attempt equips us with more knowledge from these prior failures to eventually succeed in vanquishing the spirit.”
Deeper is fresh off a fifteen-date opening slot with Future Islands, and the band’s next performance will be a hometown show at this year’s Pitchfork Music Festival on Friday, July 21st.
Deeper have also announced headline and festival dates in support of Careful!, with North American dates from September 21st-October 22nd, and European and UK shows from October 31-November 14th. Tickets for these new shows go on sale Friday, June 9th.
