Following a cryptic and slightly creepy countdown on their official website, garage-rock outfit Deerhunter have announced a new album. Fading Frontier, the follow-up to 2013’s Monomania, will hit shelves on October 16th. The album was produced by the band and Ben H. Allen III.

According to the press release and various other sources, including Pitchfork, the album features the likes of Stereolab and Broadcast. Deerhunter have also unveiled the first track from Fading Frontier, the psychedelically fuelled ‘Snakeskin’. Directed by Valentina Tapia, the video for ‘Snakeskin’ features a jaunty looking Bradford Cox, as well as alto saxophonist Zumi Rosow.  As an added first for the band, the new record will feature a duet from singers Bradford and Lockett Pundt on the track ‘Breaker’. Fading Frontier is the band’s first release since Cox was hospitalised after being hit by a car in December 2014.
